Great work Idfho I particularly like your strong composition and your use of dark and light.
It would be really good if fellow artists on the board could support each other more in the quest to bring the spiritual our in our paintings. I've been trying to do this in my work too over the last couple of years which is mainly watercolours if you would like to have a look. http://www.suerodger.moonfruit.com/
PS moonfruit is a free website if like me you want to build your own website on limited means
Maybe at some point in the future we could find a way to get our work shown together, it's much easier for musicians and poets and authors as they can perform their pieces at camps and such like and make cd's and publish books but I think artists are cinderellas unless they get some lucky break and particularly if they are trying to make some sort of living from it, prints and cards for sale is all I've come up with. The amount of time it takes to learn your craft and then infuse it with your spirituality to produce an image which is then seen and usually ignored in the vast plethora of images in cyberspace can be a bit disheartening. I know I don't do it for money or fame but primarily as communication something of what I've felt or discovered, but of course we do have to keep the material wolf from the door too!
Don't mean to rant but if anyone has any ideas please post.
