Today we feature the painting, The Fishing Ground, by Richard Bledsoe. Enjoy!
“My paintings are created after visions I experience. I am shown a complete image which I don’t necessarily understand at first, but like a dream, it is full of symbolic significance. The Fishing Ground makes me think of the book of Job, of Leviathan, and God the fisherman.”
