From Wikipedia: Temptation is the desire to perform an action that one may enjoy immediately or in the short term but will probably later regret for various reasons: legal, social, psychological (including feeling guilt), health-related, economic, etc. In the context of religion, temptation is the inclination to sin. Temptation also describes the coaxing or inducing a person into committing such an act, by manipulation or otherwise of curiosity, desire or fear of loss.

More informally, temptation may be used to mean “the state of being attracted and enticed” without anything to do with moral, ethical, or ideological valuation; for example, one may say that a piece of food looks “tempting” even though eating it would result in no negative consequences.

    An artistic and emotional depiction of the darkness that sometimes attacks us. I see a bit of light trying to work its way in…………and when it arrives, as it surely will, all the colors will be bright again.

  • Yes there is the darkness with some light trying to shine through. Thank you for taking the time to view and comment Carolyn. :D

    This is how it feels when temptation settles around us like the dark clouds of a pending storm….but if we keep searching for ways to….the clouds will part to reveal the light that was always there….sometimes good friends help to chase the clouds away…or meditation….sometimes facing the temptation head on and eye to eye will case it to flee….Jackie, this piece is evidence of your artistic talent and expressing something as challenging as temptation is not easy to do….you did it well. GREAT work here, my friend!

  • Thank you so very much for the lovely comment as well as a dead on definition of what happens with temptation. hugs
