Art is the very mirror of who we are, our aspirations and hopes, our fears and struggles, our loves and hates. She reflects our inner self, our dignity and weakness, our inadequacies as well as strengths. But art is also a window to a world envisioned by faith alone. The world of the saints and angels, the heaven of God. It is from the Creator that we originate and have our being. And so the world of art we create, is also His gift of inspiration to us. The gift of His tender love.
