This is another scene from an exquisite dream I had some months ago.
There seems to be much debate about hell. But I think that all would agree IF it does exist we don't want to go there. Personally I don't care if it does or doesn't exist, I have no wish to squander my time or energy debating. Because I believe it is a choice...really, just the natural outgrowth of the core of our being. It is the contents of our heart poured out onto fruition. More than morals or the lack there of, more than good deeds/bad deeds, no us and them. It is comprised of all you hold dear, and that which you cling too, rely on, trust. You choose your way and therein lies your fate. Thus this art came about based on that belief. No one chooses hell, and as you see here all of us will literally leap in after their hearts desire, not understanding the scope of the existence we ourselves have created in a world we must now inhabit eternally.
There by the grace of God go I.

As a child I was told about Joan of Arc, in fact I a remember watching a movie about her. But being a non Catholic her story was treated as a myth within my circles. I always wondered about it. Now after some research I believe in the myth no longer but espouse it's truth. I believe that she was so far out of the mainstream, the religious norms, and so little influenced by it that they had no control over her. Indeed it goes without saying she loved God, but I believe she did indeed receive visions from him. She saw a portion of how big he is, today we would say she lived outside the box. As for her veneration of her as a saint...I am not so inclined but I so respect her ability to live out who she was, come what may, Love the most hated lover of all time, without regard to the boxed up, down pat God so popular then (and now) and in the end be able to say "I have run the good race and lost none of myself, I gave my life and it was given back to me." And I think quite possibly she would add "no regrets"
Joan of Arc was illustrated in Poser, and CS6.
