Sunday Morning Paintings - "The House of God"

The theme of today's sermon was "The House of God".  It was a tricky theme for me because everything I thought I might like to paint was going to take too much time to finish in an hour.  So the idea I came up with was a good solution and also interactive, which I love. I painted colored blocks and at the end of the service people came up and added their hand prints to represent themselves as part of the house of God.  It was a lot of fun for me.  I love it when art becomes accessible and people can feel connected to what I'm doing.

Sunday Morning Paintings - "The Gospel"

My husband Mark brought along our camera today and took some shots and a little video while I painted this morning.  I am really enjoying painting during the service.  Today's message was about the gospel.  I painted the crown of thorns and added sprouts of flowers coming from it.  I thought it was a good way to symbolized the life that comes from Christ's death.

Sunday Morning Paintings

I am doing a new series of paintings for my church (Fellowship of Christians).  I am painting them during the service.  I have a new theme for each week.  It has been a wonderful atmosphere for painting.  It is a bit hard on my perfectionism because I have to sort of let go and be in the moment.  The paintings aren't perfect, but they have an honesty and rawness about them that is nice I think. 

The first week's message was about "Relationship".

Today's message was "A Prophetic People".  My oldest son Nathan gave me the idea for it.

Next week's theme is "The Gospel".
