Description A depiction of the hierarchy of judgment according to each persons burden of sin, a kind of social status of the after life.The pure at heart enjoy God's presence in his Holy throne room bathed by his heavenly grace. Persons in Limbo can hear his voice but must wait to see his holiness. Persons in purgatory can hear his voice but must burn off venial sin before seeing God. Persons in Hell have no hope of either, never to hear his voice or ever see him.
George Ward, Las Vegas Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement I have always loved art, drawing, sculpting marble, clay modeling, and painting. The act of creating something new with my hands from my own original thought gives me a terrific feeling of fulfillment. Painting in oils is my forte' ,but also I do drawings in other mediums, such as colored pencil. Some of my favorite artists are, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, and the raw, vibrant ,post-impressionistic style of VanGogh, to name a few. I enjoy the out-of-doors, camping, hunting, fishing, as well as shooting and building black powder weapons. I long for simpler times of days gone by, like the early nineteenth century rural America, when life moved along at a slower pace, and people cared.I am 62 years old, and with the love and support of the love of my life Loretta, I still manage to turn out an oil painting for my own pleasure from time to time . At those times I become so engrossed with the work that I guess I become part of the piece I'm working on. But the act of creating something unique and new fills me with a sense of accomplishment.
