The Water

“For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ Jesus, like putting on new clothes. There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.” Galatians 3:26-29.

Trust, burst and released into the water

Trust, burst and released into the water

Artist’s description of series

While painting these paintings I gave up control of where the paint went and what it did and enjoyed seeing and following the patterns the paint made when left to run across the canvas.

It was absolutely liberating and I haven’t had so much fun painting ever! 

On a deeper level I can only liken what I experienced to a feeling of being released into water. As if, at long last, finding the place where I belong and things flow effortlessly… where I am less conscious of myself and more to that which surrounds me.

Relating all of this to the Word of God brought me to a place called “in Christ”, where after going through the water, it is no longer I that live, but Christ.

No longer my attributes, but His in which I revel and boast.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
