A painting inspired by the image of a freshly picked pomegranate from Bahji posted by Sandra Lynn Hutchison. She was on a pilgrimage of healing for her beloved sister Heather Hutchison. I painted it all in one session. I had created the canvas with the little box with the orange and pine cone (both from the holy land) a few years back but it never quite worked out. Then this beauty of a pomegranate appeared and I made the connection.
“Of all pilgrimages the greatest is to relieve the sorrow-laden heart.” – ‘Abdu’l-Baha
