Fantastic visionary piece, Judy. Glad you finally decided to post this - it's a beautiful work of art. Vote.

Judy Via-Wolff replied:

Thanks Kristen! I was waiting to re-photo it but perhaps I don't need to.

Thanks Chris!

Thanks Oliver, what took me so long was that I was hoping to go and re photograph this, instead I scanned a photo I took of the painting when I used a film camera. Yes vision does come sparingly, ( so does time to paint for me!). I'm glad you can "feel the spirits"...

good work

Judy!! What took you so long to post this. Anyway, thanks for sharing your story and painting. This looks ancient and full of light. Immaculate!!. Can feel the spirits move in harmony. I like the portrayal of yourself. You should paint more of your visions and share. Than again, vision comes sparingly.

Artist's Description

I have wanted to post this for a long time. It hangs in the home of a very close spiritual friend and teacher. Before that, it hung for several years in St. John the Evangelist Church. This was an inspired work like a vision that came to me. My husband had traveled to Petra, Jordon. I followed his trip by internet and was intrigued by this place and researched the history. At the time I was caring for my Mom and going to a bible study in an interesting small round room circled by long narrow stained glass windows attached to a church. While I was sitting there at the table this vision struck me related to the Petra caves. I saw the same configuration in which we were sitting and the table and I saw the cave and the �light� in the darkness. All symbolic. I did the initial sketch at that moment. About 20 to 30 years ago Papyrus bound biblical scripture was found in a cave in Petra. These were some of the first discoveries of scripture that was not in scroll form....

About Judy Via-Wolff

Judy Via-Wolff

I have a great love for nature and all God's creation. In any artworks or photos I create, I try to reflect a moment of fleeting beauty as all things are but for an instant. I love to paint and use pastels. I paint in oils, acylics, and water colors depending on the piece. I also pursue the medieval technique of egg tempera painting.I also have begun digital painting which I create from scratch with a stylus. Photography also provides an instant in time. Judy has a BFA and a Masters Degree From RIT"S School for American Craftsman and Fine art. She spent many years as a glass artist and was able to reflect the light and colors of God's creation through this medium. She won many awards over the years and enjoyed creating new works...
