Sarayu





36 x 36 - Acrylic on Canvas - Private collection (Portland, Oregon)

The story behind the work:
"Mack followed Sarayu as best he could out the back door and down the walkway past the row of firs.  To walk behind such a being was like tracking sunbeam.  Light seemed to radiate through her and then reflect her presence in multiple places at once.  Her nature was rather ethereal, full of dynamic shades and hues of colour and motion."  ......The Shack, William P. Young

I was undone by this passage, such an eloquent picture of Holy Spirit and so similar to what I have also seen.  This is my attempt at trying to capture the essence of someone so exquisiste and sovereign on canvas
