Painting - Oil On Canvas - Original Art By Xueling Zou
Thank you for viewing my original art. © Xueling Zou
This is the story of how I was inspired to paint "Confess..."
When visiting the extraordinary ruins at Qoricancha (Golden Temple) in Cusco Peru, I followed a guy entering a huge gate into a quiet area, I found myself in the beautiful baroque church of Santa Domingo (I found out later). First I saw a statue of the praying Virgin Mary, illuminated and radiant in front of the alter; second, I turned around and saw many golden arches with painted angels near the ceiling. At the same time I realized that a few workers were doing minor construction. Third, I heard a loud voice in Spanish I couldn't understand, and turned back, I saw an angry priest in a white vestment shouting and making hand signals to me. It seemed I could be sent to hell immediately if I stayed one more second. I ran out as soon, as fast as I could, and wondered if he was really a priest in his heart, or only by his job title...
