The Vicar’s Dilemma (November 2008)

Consider the vicar’s dilemma; how to reconcile the matter of spiritual conscience with the lust for earthly treasure.

This picture evolved from an in-progress novel (Acolyte of Darkness) I’ve been working on for the past year, a story about a morally corrupt Episcopal priest. This is not to be taken as an illustration of the priest in the story; rather as an image that reflects something of the feelings I have for the character.
