How I Pray as I Paint

November 15, 2012

TENDING TO THE FIREReligious images can generate spiritual values that prompt disciples of Jesus Christ to serve others. Artists actualize the Word of God through creating images that evoke a response in the viewers of their art. This has been my experience.

Through my own painting process I have learned to communicate with God in the language of silence, engaging the physical material and affective response of my heart and mind. When I have used my paintings to articulate how I experience God, I have sparked spiritual conversations in different settings, both at home and in ministry. The project is significant because it shows a way for people to express their experience of God through creativity, which can inspire faith.
