This series came about after the decision to simplify my approach to imagery and color. I began a black and white period after the golden shadows and long after the mummies. This approach seemed honest and necessary at the time. The images all developed into Judeo-Christian stories, some with a long history particularly in the Renaissance and Pre Raphaelite periods, some completely my own. They are all the result of paint and prayer going together, work and worry, creation and contemplation; putting color on canvas and figuring out where it is going by delving into the sub-conscious or unconscious Christian experience of this one man who is trying to follow his conscience to God.
