Art and Beauty Tuesday--Walfrido Garcia

Blind Faith by Walfrido Garcia is an amazing painting.  It shows an eclipse of the moon over the waves. Garcia's own explanation of the painting is this:

Have you ever believed without seeing?  This painting is a testament to believing in the light through the shroud of darkness. 

The light shines from behind the blocked moon and illuminates the waves.  You can see the light peaking out from the bottom of the moon--a promise of more Light to come.

What caught my eye on this was not only the beautiful rendition of the eclipse, but the turquoise at the top of the big wave. That color always reminds me of Our Lady. There she is in the light of the Son. The painter may not have had that in mind, but, hey, Jesus wants His mother loved and seen in His light so, why not? Thanks for this lovely painting. I know I am always going to enjoy visiting you.

That's a beautiful interpretation, Barbara. God gives His light, even in the midst of darkness.

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
