Empty Faithful Painting

Empty Faithful, or Inanis Fidelia, is a 16 by 20 inch acrylic painting still life on thick gallery wrapped canvas just off of the easel. The thickness of the canvas support helps lend a feeling of depth to the three vases on a corner cabinet shelf.

An image of an empty vase in iconography represents the human soul awaiting to be filled with spiritual energy and enlightenment, or assention even, and here the qualities of stoneware is a reflection of souls who have passed on returned to the Earth for a rebirthing of the Spirit. The title of the painting is written on the back side in both English and Latin too as, Inanis Fidelia. "Inanis" is the empty void of soul. The word "fidelia" means an earthenware pot or vase; I have perhaps taken artistic liscence in joining these words to fit my need. This painting has a great deal of texture and subtle color varitation that was hard to capture in a photograph, but I do hope visitors here will enjoy viewing it and the new owner will cherish the painting in her home.

The above image shows the canvas edges that are thick and painted to resemble the rustic display cabinet that is holding the vases.
