A flower gloriously opens to the world, offering its beauty and abundance. We take it in through our senses, ultimately experiencing it in our heart. The heart of the Magdalene is a metaphor for that expanding and abundant sense of connection that blooms as we experience the beauty of her subtle message.

The butterfly is a symbol of life, evolution, rebirth. It is the symbol of Psyche, or the soul, the human who fell in love with a god and became immortal through love.

This is the Magdalene, whose soul offered the world abundant truth; who evolved, and became inmortal through her love for Jesus Christ. Her soul, like the butterfly, grew wings and elevated itself, ethereal and bright, light, expansive.

Expanding like fire.

I give the Magdalene an attribute, and try to learn about her as I paint her. This is the practice. While meditating on a symbol that emerges from imagination, and immersed in a meditative state, a sense of completeness reveals a truth, that cannot be expressed in words. It is a kind of happiness, an inefable joy.


Invitations for expanding beauty, discovering our soul's connection, and compliment our natural spiritual paths:
