When I was at a wedding a few years back, I fell in love with the dresses worn by the flower girls. The bride made the dresses using strips of iridescent tulle. The effect when the light hit the tulle was breathtaking, especially when contrasted against darkness.
After I started painting these beautiful girls, I realized the girls were really a reflection of me. At heart I am still a child. But more importantly, I am a child of God. And I hope to be a light against the dark.
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
