“Images translate the power, the peace, the calling and the reward for living life on a Spiritual Path”


Barry’s art speaks to the spirit and soul that is the essential heart of all beings without words, his images translate the power, the peace, the calling and the reward for living life on a Spiritual Path.

His brush spells the passion of the painter. The eagerness of his color work rapidly moves the mood of the viewer to an aching recognition, of human vulnerability and strengths, of life, of death , ascension  and eternal existence ….WOW!

With much appreciation of the viewing of his work,

Firescribes Artwork Speaks to Me Personally

Absolute Surrender

I visited the home of Barry Donaldson and walked over to a new piece of artwork he’d just finished and did a double-take. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. It spoke to me personally so much that, to this day, I have three original paintings from Firescribe.

As his artwork has spoken to me over the years I must always recall the gift of Love that this man holds in his heart. That is the power behind his creations.

As he has given abundantly, he will also receive in abundance.

Thank you, Always,

Brandon Munson – Evangelist

“Drink Offering” Speaks of Life and Hope

Drink Offering

Barry’s work, “Drink Offering”, spoke to me of the life and hope that the cleansing waters brings to a persons soul. The newness and essence to be made new in God’s image.

Two times while preaching I used his artwork, once on the street and another in the jail. This work has blessed the many eyes that have seen it. It draws them in, seeing the goodness that God wants to give us.

Magical, Strong, and Delicately Mystical

The first moment I looked a t Barry Donaldson’s paintings I knew immediately that the only place they could have come from was deep inside of him… they are astonishing… So magical, so strong, and yet delicately mystical.

I commissioned Barry to etch 3 interior glass doors for a condo I designed… a standing Buddha, a seated Buddha and an elephant. Everyone that sees them falls in love with these exquisite original works of art.









I have visited the finest galleries all over the world and with all sincerity I believe that this man is a talented visionary, and a world class artist.

Brings Visions to Life

Birth of the Firebride

Barry’s artwork has hung in our home now for over 10 years.  We have one of his earlier pieces “Temple of the Most High God”.  It’s ancient depth and holy feel remind us of the awesomeness of God.  It has a very masculine tone to it.

“Birth of the Firebride” is one of our favorites and graces our fireplace mantle. The colors, light, and imagery took our breath away.  It speaks to the part of us that must come up out of adversity and in so doing becomes something glorious.  With it’s rich color, it is very feminine and balances out beautifully.

Every person who views his artwork will ultimately find one that provokes self-examination.  Anyone who visits our home asks about these pieces and it never fails to be a rich conversation as each speaks from their own place and how the art enlightens or challenges them.

Many blessings be upon Barry for bringing the visions to life in his artwork.
