Painting as prayer
Paintings has been many things for me: a release, a form of self-expression, a way of capturing moments in time, creating beauty, getting to know myself, coping with grief…but now it has also become a form of prayer.
A way of being with someone, thinking about them, focusing on their healing and sending all of that into the air waves. My Mum has been unwell these last few weeks and is currently recovering from a serious operation. At 85 she has lots of people who love her and are praying for her. In my world I am painting her back to health- this has become my form of prayer.
Thank you Art, what would I do without you?
