This painting is a comment on Gay marriage. I wanted to create a place to stimulate discussion but not offend in the Church. The title has a double meaning as .. in God's embrace or in you lovers embrace. I love the fact that this can be a religious statement or a gay image of two men embracing. This is oil on canvas using a combination of brush and palette knife. This was painted as part of my Artists in Residence program at St John the Baptist residency - Peterborough. Last year all the papers were full of the gay marriage issue and its a subject close to my heart.
