BEAUTY draws us to contemplate truth and goodness. As Dietrich von Hildebrand profoundly points out, “At the sight of the truly beautiful we are freed from the tension that urges us on toward some immediate practical goal. We become contemplative, and this is immensely valuable. We expand, and even our soul itself becomes more beautiful when beauty comes to meet us, takes hold of us, and fires us with enthusiasm. It opens our eyes[…]it opens our hearts, inviting us to transcendence and leading us in conspectu Dei, before the face of God.” Each Sacred work I paint, whether it hangs on the walls of a church or in the comfort of a loving home, is done in prayer and with the purpose of sharing true Beauty Himself to all who look upon it.
