I quoted Picasso last week saying, “If I could put it in words, there would be no need to paint it.” This rough, passionate painting falls into that category. When asked what I want church to be, it is hard to put into words. Energy, power, light, God’s presence, awe. This painting does a better job than those words, don’t you think?
It is available for sale, but as we’re entering day six with no power, I can’t post them properly on my phone. So hopefully within the week I’ll change this post to have links to the original and merchandise, as well as better photos.
It’s Not About the Church Building is 15″x30″ and done in heavy, vigorous pastel. See the entire work above, and details below.
