At sunset in the purple wood, he stood beside her as he said he would. Their hearts smiled and he felt that no eternity could separate them from the peace that transcended language.
The angel appeared to guide them away from all that would divide or distract them from the beauty of the silence and the assurance of their innocence—her maligned body and soul, his in question because he chose to stand by her. Nothing more was needed but the purple light showering down upon them. All was well, and ten thousand years would not deter them from this truth.
This painting was inspired by my visit to the Languedoc and Provence regions in the South of France on two visits in 2016 and by what I know by heart—soul memories from the life of Mary Magdalen. During my time there, the soul of France reawakened me and connected me more deeply to my soul’s story and memories from a life long ago. All Soul of France paintings explore experiences, natural landscapes, and the history of this land that speaks to my heart.
What is your essential story of life? What is alive in you?
I hope this painting has sparked a reconnection and remembrance for you today. I believe there is beauty to be found right here, right now, all around you and right there within you.
I'll meet you on the way!
