The path of a child, in the woods he roams
A lovely angel, to guide and abide
The journey so long, no sign of home
But the lovely angel, always by his side..
Those are the lyrics of a hymn we used to sing when we very kids. And although it is a psalm, in the painting I am not confessing my faith in God or angels… but in everything!
As an artist, I want to keep my mind open; to study and t obe stimulated by everything, from occultism to theosophy.
In this painting the calla has has taken the figure of the guardian angel and is protecting the rose; a little child.
