This is a painting of my favorite person on Earth and the best friend I’ve ever had. In this scene my wife Sugel is seen holding up and peering into a kerosene lantern.

There are various symbols and meanings portrayed here.  My wife has been a very positive influence in my life and I see her as a guide for me to find my happiness, which at least up until I met her had proved to be elusive.  She has brought light into the darkness of my life.  A secondary meaning is that the light she is holding is actually my own spirit or life essence, and she holds it within her hands and maintains it’s life and brightness.
