"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." -Matthew 5:16
This painting is my interpretation of feeling illuminated with inspiration and reassurance, and finding hope, answers, or that your path has been made clear. The lantern represents the woman receiving light and keeping it close to her, while it also serves to illuminate the lives of others. We prepare ourselves to be enlightened along our way and as we do so in faith, we will be illuminated.
