The Seeds of an Unfamiliar Truth

I created this painting during my Gods Heroes and Monsters class last semester. Yes, it was as good as it sounds. Mythology and how it relates to fine art? I could talk about that all day. Anyway, I was inspired to create this painting after reading this passage in The Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton:

“The mind that is the prisoner of conventional ideas and the will that is the captive of its own desire cannot accept the seeds of an unfamiliar truth and a supernatural desire.”
