“Trials and transformation” framed Acrylic on 18”x27” paper mounted to wood 2018
This painting is about accepting every challenge and rising to your highest potential through it all no matter how difficult, frightening or painful it may be.
This is a prophetic painting Vajra created before becoming the person in the ring of fire, face to face with a wall of flame the night the Thomas fire transformed his life, burning to ashes his home and studio.
some of those ashes were mixed into the acrylic paints he used to recreate this painting after it burned, using it as an opportunity to make the painting better than before.
every challenge is an opportunity. That’s the heart of the message.
