‘Awakening to the Divine Essence’ is an image requested by a friend. He envisioned an angelic being, with wings caught in webs of oppression, struggling to liberate herself.
As I am deeply influenced by Eckhart Tolle, I considered the ego, with it’s limiting beliefs and concepts, to be the oppressive element. So as this being sets her gaze on the Divine, she lifts herself to the awakened state of presence & liberation from mind made suffering.
The original water mixable oil on canvas is 30″x 40″, created in 2021.
