This work was based on a period of intense visioning that my wife was complaining that I was never in bed

Very interesting concept! As someone mentioned earlier, it does remind me of lost spirits returning to Heaven, where they belong. A very nice composition on your part, sir! Keep up the amazing work!

Thank you very much Tori

This piece took me around 8 months to realize and draw after I had the vision. I tried drawing a sketch the night I had it, but I didn't full realize its full meaning until around 2 months ago

I'm glad you were still able to keep the image in your mind after all that time!

This piece was quite a challenge to translate a lucid vision in color to line work

I know what you mean. it's impossible to translate what the mind sees into a material object. it's quite wonderful though!

The light shining behind the black hole huh? What does the black hole accuatly represent? A sun possibly? For its light compared to the Holy Light is darkness

Black Hole Sun :)

This was a design decision, whereas the rays already formed the 'light', then the center was black as presence of everything . . . the universe . . . GOD

I simply love the use of negative space in this one! So suggestive and metaphoric!

Upon finishing this, it did seem that I painted a "Black Hole Sun", but joking aside it was quite a surprise that I was looking at Jacob's ladder when I finished it. It took me around 8 months to realize the meaning of this vision

I envy your lineart skills. So precise, and the colors are the dark and rich kind which I like.

This reminds me of many times that I have sent either one or many souls that I show the path way to the light so they can leave this Earth in peace. There are many, many lost souls in this world that were not laid to rest properly and so wander this planes of existance in between the living and the light. All souls deserve peace and rebirth when they see the Light. It pleases me that I can help such people on their way.

All these visions I share aren't for me to interpret as one meaning alone, but for them to resonate a unique lesson / feeling to each viewer. I am please that this piece has connected to you on such a deep level

I agree with you, they are so many that little do people help, even dose who are gifted to see them do not help. I can only feel them and sometimes I feel their pain as well :aww: and I believe that someday I will learn to see them and I will help them as well :pray: by the way the art is amazing.
