"Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began," Timothy 2 1:9
When I was sitting in church last week there she was down the pew in her beautiful hat touched by the light from the stain glass window. I sat in awe at the simple beauty and asked her after church if I could snap some pictures... and as you can see she agreed. You will probably see it again as I had her do several poses.
I have not painted like this in a while. Figurative painting is what I mainly did until five years ago when I left the world of fragile realism and stepped out into impressionism and abstract. Every artist grows with their changes and I think every path leads to another challenge and a another door to open.
I believe this season does the same as allowing us to realign our beliefs and bring our life back to center with God. The door stands wide open...will you walk through?
“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:6-8
