Portraits

 
Visible light is only a small fraction of the radiant energy of the universe.
There is light from the Sun, or any artificial source, to give powers to shapes and colours.
There is light in the imagination, that illuminates suddenly any possible combination of concepts into a new visualized reality.
There is light from the painting itself, that captures any hidden emotion.
And there is light from within myself, that breaks through and emanates outwards, the irresistible light of universal love.
