Conscience at Heaven’s Gate



Conscience counsels me out of sadness

For too much of it is led to madness;

And though alone I did sin the seven, in darkness

The deadly deeds I cry out unto heaven, in earnest;

For God is also glad of them

They who repent before the Kingdom. 


For being Alive



I cry just for being alive

I cry just for feeling

The love of life

The joy of presence

The gift of infinity

Our eternal Deity.

From a Series of Ink Portraits

Inspired by the rapid motion of using a paintbrush and ink. I like to dip the ink every few strokes. The images are courtesy of using my imagination. I am not yet fortunate enough to acquire a sitter for such frantic art-work.

Drawings: Black ink on A3 Paper (29.7 x 42.0cm).
