These works are my view of certain concepts that are universal such as life and death, nature of prayer, the forces of good and evil.  They convey a deeper understanding into the world around us. They relate to the purpose of our lives and beyond this physical world- the world of the soul. These works are what starts a conversation. These play on my mind for months or sometimes years, and then gradually take shape, until I feel ready to make it emerge into the world of painting.
