 The title of my painting is 'Fear No Evil'.   Before, I simply called it 'the beast' or 'the  star'  or something. I never really knew what it was going to be called because it was a work that came together and developed, as the painting progressed over many months of meditations. The recent atrocities wrought in this world drew back a veil on its meaning and nature of the words taken as the title, from the bible: Psalms 23, verse 4 'Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil'

The central figure of the beast, who stands proudly in the gates of purgatory. From under his flaming wings reigns a showers of blood, showing he sheds blood of mankind, where ever he goes. Behind him there is a trail of black flags of fanaticism, hate and violence. Central in the painting, in the back ground is the winged angel of death, who stand with sword planted firmly in front of him. A figure, a woman stands in the intimidating and dominating gaze of the beast but her attention is not there, its caught on a brilliant light, high above the mountains of the darkened valley. The light casts a path of rainbow hued rays. In spite of the peril of , rape, torture, slavery, death, she is safe from the forces of evil, with one hand holding white bloom, signifying purity of spirit, the star of mercy, guides the souls path during the darkest ravines on the way to higher planes
