This is my latest project which has been one that has been in my head for a while but has only started to come together recently. The vision is the river flowing. There are three rivers that flow into Truro and the way that I saw it was the three small rivers flowing in but then the Holy Spirit working in God's people in the city and the river becoming a living torrent of water that gathers power and flows out of the city to bring life in dry places. It's going to be on a massive canvas. these sketches and ideas are where it's at right now, but since I have time, I'm going to get going on it!
So we are in lockdown because of Covid 19 and i haven't updated anything in the longest time. The Art of Worship as a kind of venture has been shelved mainly because I have had to take on extra work due to the fact that my husband has been diagnosed with early onset Parkinsons and has dropped a day of work a week and both of my kids have been struggling health wise and it's all been a bit full on. I haven't stopped making art work in church though or at worship events, it's just been a little less structured. I'll put a few images here of bits and pieces that I've done, including making a calendar, which was cool. So firstly I have got involved with a community project called Breathe which is in Penzance and is run by two amazing friends, Karen and Murray Golden. It's 'church' but not as you know it! I love it. It's currently streaming live on Thurs, Fri and Sat due to lockdown and it is keeping me sane. I've done a mural for them and take part in some of their art activities. I want to be involved more.
This is my little sideline adventure where I am planning to explore making Art as a form of worship. I am currently working on some ideas for some workshops coming up in the Spring so that i can encourage others to explore.
