Art and Beauty Tuesday

The next in our series by Thomas Cole is Voyage of Life: Manhood.  This is where we realize that we have messed up.  We've tried to go it alone, without God and are heading down a dark and dangerous path.

As the dark clouds part, we see our guardian angel, who has been waiting for us all along.  There is light at the end of the tunnel, but it will require a change of direction.

We are on our knees, begging God for help.

I was away from my faith for a very very long time. I can certainly relate to the man on the boat. That man is me.

"God come to my assistance"
"Lord make haste to help me."

Beautiful painting1 I love the old religious art so much more than modern art.

Beautiful pictures. It really captures a "dark path," and a parting of the darkness, moving toward light.

Dymphna said...

It really does. Thomas Cole was great at depicting light and darkness.

You're welcome, Barbara. I'm enjoying doing them. Beautiful art and music keep me centered on what is important.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
