Shakti Angel

This painting was made by chipping away with large brush strokes to create an image that added up to be a light source that emanated out into other colors.

Shakti is a power that you feel from within, and it radiates out and affects others with an awareness of the oneness of what's all around.

Shakti Angel combines Eastern philosophy - the Buddhist principle of oneness and everything being interconnected, and the Christian iconography of an angel.

In order to allude at a universal image, the image is abstract, and doesn't have overt definition.
