Worship II

Worship II, Presence - 15 x 20" Oil pastel and acrylic on paper
©Helen Read

This is another in my series on worship. Again, I'm using abstraction to express an abstract notion. As I created this, its form began to emerge! I love working this way, because even as the artist I find that my outcomes are as big a surprise to me as they would be to anyone viewing the work! I love being surprised while I work! (Actually, that happens rather regularly to artists!) It began to speak to me in the process of its creation as how the presence of God flows and moves and wraps and reaches. To me, that is a very comforting thought ~ as the Psalms so often remind us - Where can I go where the Spirit of God is not there?

Nice painting. I know what you mean by surprising yourself. When I create art the result is often not known to me when I start to paint.
