Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!
As this work came from my hands, done without preconceived planning ~ but simply as an act of worship ~ the idea of the shining glory of God began to come forward in my thoughts. There are references to it through the Old Testament, as seen at times by the children of Israel. It was also evidenced on the face of Moses when he entered into the presence of God (and yet, not ever seeing him face to face for it would have been too much to survive). This is a concept that we cannot begin to imagine - it is totally outside our realm of experience. Imagination is not a sufficient vehicle for what the Glory of God was, is, or will be! But for this earthly realm, it is the only vehicle we have! Soli Deo Gloria!
