Painting as Prayer

Sanctuary with Solace

Painting is an act of faith. A physical manipulation of materials across a considered surface, working processes exposed, tensions revealed in a compelling composition that evokes a distinct mood. Communion with God takes many forms. An image to the glory of God unites the beholder in the sanctity of contemplation. Painting as prayer envisions this awareness of sanctuary with solace, melancholia transcended when explored as threshold not boundary. A sacramental act of worship, witness and wonder that, by grace, encourages the mind, emboldens the heart and embraces the soul.
