Bette Anne Wygant

November 30th through January 4, 2015
My Journey Each painting explores the energy of eternal light, that can heal & inspire all of us. We only need to recognize it around us and within us. I hope my work inspires others to find and share that light. I have been an oil painter for forty-eight years. It is my quest to investigate and experience the bond between the physical and spiritual worlds. We are just one breath away from continuing. Visit my other website here for more about me and my art work. Also visit my posts on Unity.Gallery - a social network for artists: Here is a video featuring me and my work there as well: Let me share this with you, ”Day of Judgement” (below), was painted in 1974, after my brother was murdered while attending Law School. His death sent me on a lifelong journey to understand and connect with a deeper reality. Recently I was able to continue this healing process by participating in a show in Newtown, CT where "Healing Through Art" was the focus. Through my art I was able to connect with a few who had lost loved ones in the recent tragedy. They were reassured to see and hear the good news of eternal love and healing that is possible. I look forward to continuing on this journey through similar opportunities where others can share in this experience.
Another focus of my work is on the Natural energy that surounds all living things. In this painting, "Spring Symphony" (below) I share my impression of a moment in time. While I was riding in my car, I glanced out the window as the Sun peeked out of the dark raincloud to reveal an intoxicating sea of wildflowers, while listening to the Brandenburg concertos. I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the moment.
