John Hyatt: My Brush with AngeLs

It has been a heck of a year. Fighting throat cancer should have been a miserable struggle but instead I just kept painting and these works are documents from that adventure. The journey has been rich in experience. It took me to dark places where your light can either shine or expunge itself. I have fought dragons wearing lightweight armour made of mirrors. I have drunk from the chalice of eternal life in lands where marvelous and strange creatures rule. I have followed mesmeric melodies across the valley where clouds hang in the tails of wild blue horses. I have seen colours that I did not know existed and been rewarded with a new voice that speaks only Truth. I reached the silent place where creation roars. Here, I give you a map of the waterways to the Centre of the Earth and back. Switch off your cell phones because, here, you are beyond time and space. No-one can reach you. No-one is watching you. History will not record your passing. You are present solely to enjoy the rhythms of my brush with Angels.
