Fishing Trinity

Barbara Bjelland's avatar Barbara Bjelland

Description of “The Fishing Trinity:” These three men appeared on the path as I was plein air painting in Holland State Park. They seemed to be a type of the Holy Trinity, which has been described as a "dance of love," a community which invites others to join its interlacing dance. I was inspired by Andrei Rublev's icon of the Holy Trinity, painted c. 1410, which depicts the three angels who visited Abraham in Genesis 18. I am interested in revelations of the sacred in everyday life, and I imagined that I had witnessed heavenly visitors walking by.
