By focusing on detail I want to show the perfection of God's work, the beauty and poetry of His Creation. The world is beautiful as He created it. (...) We need so little to be happy! When I stand on my knees and paint, I pray to God to give me a little beauty to put in my paintings, much of which he put in his creation. And when the picture begins to bind, to appear from beneath the brush, then I feel a joy and fullness that heals all the evils and makes me happy. " A bliss that we want to sharewiththe visitors of the exhibition, who shall be open until May 3rd, 2019.
