Painted at The Gathering in Tacoma, WA in July 2017 – prints available for a short time. Original 36×36 acrylic on board.
This was a different piece. It’s not my usual subject matter or style, but I saw it very clearly before I got up to paint. I kind of shook it off and worked on the others, but then ran out of things to do and felt like the Lord was reminding me why I was there and what my job was. I don’t believe that my job as a painter during worship is to create pieces for my own pleasure. Rather, I’m there to release visually what He wants me to release. So, with that reminder, I grabbed a fresh board and began painting. Of course, I had to at least do some splatters and some asemetic carving! It felt as though the worship kicked up a notch as I worked on this piece, but wether that was corporately true or just true for me, I’m not sure.
Entering in individually and corporately to greater realms of worship.
