Sunday morning ~


Worship 2, Mixed media (acrylic, oil pastel)

This is another in my abstract series on worship. I think all my art, if intended to be an act of worship, is that. However, this one was meant to be devoid of any representational images and merely a representation of my own feelings as I contemplate my sense of God's presence in my life. In this, I wanted to express his mystery, his beauty, his encompassing and surrounding presence. All my life I've known the truth, "Jesus loves me", but only as I've navigated through the complexities and unforeseen upheavals of life, have I begun to understand his love as very personal, very intimate, very deep. Its easy to miss that ... to never take notice... to be caught in the current of a busy life. I've certainly struggled with that. But I'm convinced that he longs for deep connection with me, while reminding me of his presence in many small ways day by day.

What a beautiful post and painting for Sunday. Thank you! I love vibrancy, happiness, joy, as well as intensity in your painting. It resonates with me. I often feel these same elements in my own relationship with Jesus Christ. You helped me to reflect on that today, and I thank you! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

What a great witness and thank you for sharing such an intimate painting with all of us! It's so beautiful. God can translate every curve and void and understand exactly what you're saying through your painting. Nice work:)

Thank you Helen for sharing and reminding me of Gods love for me. We often stumble and forget. May you have a successful week painting.
I must admit, last week i was not very productive. Do you also get that, struggling to paint?
