Some visionary paintings by William Arkle

The first picture is (I think) God presenting each of us with the Great Gift of the world and his divine friendship - there, waiting patiently for us to notice. The rest are an expression of our normal, natural, everyday world as suffused by awareness of its meaning, purpose, God's love: reality shining through appearances.

To get their full value, it is important to recognize that these paintings are not ideas or hopes or philosophical projections: they are attempted depictions of William Arkle's direct personal experiences.
