"Lambri", or "How the Orthodox celebrate the Night of the Resurrection", acrylic on canvas, 2019

It is a gladness of soul, a record of the Eucharist's experience, that all these years I thanked my Parish, with all these people of God who came to for the vigil on the Holy Saturday night outside the temple with smiling faces and candles in their hands and celebrating Christ who was THEIR OWN.

The Eucharistic way is expressed with the living Bishop (or Priest) who had been in front of them; they kissed him and embraced him in a sacramental identification with Christ in an explosion of joy.
