"The Conception"

One of a series of symbolic, Still-Life paintings representing major moments in Christian history. This painting shows the Conception of Jesus in the body of the Virgin Mary, by the power of the Holy Spirit. White flowers with petal formations that resemble bursting fireworks were chosen to express the joy with which we greet the incarnation of God and salvation. The candlelight represents the Holy Spirit while the glass vase represents Mary's blessed body. Acrylics on Canvas A2
