Boat Bed Collage

I treated myself today. To celebrate the return of my hummingbirds to the feeder, I bought the hummingbird print, posted above, which I have been eyeing for some time now. The artist, Rick Beerhorst, describes this painting as having a theme of spiritual sight going past physical sight. I do so like that thought. His paintings bring to mind Magritte.

He states:
I have always felt that a piece of art work can become a portal into the spiritual world like the idea of thin places in Celtic theology. All artistic creation can become a flight towards God. Then lets surround ours selves with truth and beauty and live lives accordingly.
(Amen to that!)

Do check out his family's website!
