THE ROCK "My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken." Psalm 62 :1-2 NIV Hot off the painting board ! This print isn't yet available as the printers are closed due to Covid. Late September 2020 found us in windy North Cornwall. The sea was wild, contorting and changing moment by moment - an artist's dream ! I came home with lots of sketches of this wild sea. In prayer the wild sea returned to my memory - the wild sea of Covid. But in its midst stood the impenetrable Rock of the Lord - the I AM.
ENTER THE GATE Jesus said " I AM the gate, whoever enters through me will be saved" John 10:9 NIV Although challenging, this year I decided to read John's gospel slowly. I've read it many times, as it was the first Gospel I met. I just love it! So I arrived at John 10. The image that came to me was of a garden - the first time I have painted one! This garden, is different as three seasons are within it - Autumn, Winter and Spring. In order to experience 'Summer' one needs to take the invitation to 'Enter the Gate' to the other side.
TIME TO PAUSE "This is the day the Lord has made - let us be glad and rejoice in it." Psalm 118: 24 NIV I started this at the beginning of 2020 as my husband was going in for a hip replacement. I naively thought I could paint while he was recuperating..... Instead this was painted during the start of the first lockdown......
LIFELIGHT "The lifelight blazed out of the darkness: the darkness couldn't put it out." John 1:5 Message
BREATH OF GOD "His breath is like a rushing torrent" Isaiah 20:28 NIV This image came to me one time as I was praying last year - the Lord's breath storming the darkness in our world, bringing down whatever barriers are in His way, and making things new.
I AM DOING A NEW THING "Be alert, be present, I'm about to do something brand new." Isaiah 43:19 Message
RIVER OF LIFE "Wherever the river flows, life will flourish." Ezekiel 47:9 Message
THE THRONE ROOM "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come." Revelation 4:8 NIV The Book of Revelation seems to be the 'Marmite' book of Scripture - either its avoided or embraced. Personally its an artist's treasury - full of wonderful imagery and giving such Hope and Encouragement for the future. Conseqently, 'The Throne Room' is one of seven paintings , so far, inspired by this book.
COME AND DRINK "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink." John 7 : 37 NIV Originally this image was painted onto a friend's lounge wall in acrylics. That was a first for me ! I painted the Cross into corner of the room so that the 'arms' of the cross appeared to reach out. It has made quite a conversation piece.!
THE PRAYER ANGEL The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel's hand. Revelation 8:4 NIV
BEFORE THE THRONE "...there before me was a great multitude, from every tribe, people and language before the throne....wearing white robes and holding palm branches." Revelation 7 : 9-10 NIV
SUNDROP "....for as the sun soars above the earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think. Just as the rain and snow descend from the skies and don't go back until they have watered the earth doing their work of making things grow and blossom.....so shall my words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed." Isaiah 55: 10-11 Message Soon after painting this, Roger and I were invited by a teacher friend to do a large collage with her year group of 7-8 year olds as part of a 'Creation' project at the school. Being pretty hopeless at picture titles I thought we would have a bit of fun with the children and have a competition for the best title for the painting. The girl who won with 'Sundrop' was thrilled to receive an A4 copy of the painting. By the way, there is a treefrog hidden in the picture - can you find it ?
HEALING LEAVES On each side of the river stood the tree of life. " ...and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations" Revelation 22:2 NIV
NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth coming down out of heaven" Revelation 21:1 NIV
LAMB OF GOD "Then I saw a lamb" Revelation 5:6 NIV The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him and said : 'Look, the Lamb of God , who takes away the sin of the world' John 1:29 NIV
MIGHTY ANGEL "Then I saw another mighty angel coming down out of heaven. He was robed in a cloud with a rainbow above his head and his face was like the sun. He was holding a little scroll which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land." Revelation 10:1 NIV
CARE AND MAJESTY " No-one can snatch them out of my Father's hand " John 10 : 29-30 NIV This picture started out as a large ( 6 foot by 8 foot) worship art piece painted during a 'Cathedral Praise ' service in Coventry. The image burned inside me, so I knew I had to paint it 'properly' ! Both during that special evening service, and since, the Lord has spoken to many hearts through this image.
SING TO THE LORD 1 - Available only as a card "Then the trees of the forest will sing. They will sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth." 1 Chronicles 16:33 NIV
SING TO THE LORD 2 "Then the trees of the forest will sing. They will sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth." 1 Chronicles 16:33 NIV
TREES AS THE SUN Then God said "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds" . And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:11 NIV This is one of my earliest paintings, from 1995 ! The original 'Trees' painting was very much smaller, and I displayed it at a small gallery in Earlsdon, Coventry. The owner of the gallery was intrigued by the new approach in painting and encouraged me to continue, which I am still doing !!
LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS - available only as a card "The lifelight blazed out of the darkness and the darkness couldn't put it out." John 1 : 5 Message
JUDGEMENT DAY - THE DEAD ARE JUDGED "The sea gave up the dead that were in it,and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done." Revelation 20:23 NIV
