Art as Prayer

I wanted to paint last night but was too tired, so I got an early bedtime and set my alarm to wake early to paint. I forgot what a prayerful experience art can be. I painted four new t-shirts and worked on one with a friend. All had Christian themes and all were in my trademark sloppy, bohemian, abstract style — and I was pleased with them.

I was fully engrossed, single-minded, totally silently engaged in an expression of my soul. What a nice Sunday morning prayer time. I’ll have to do that again.

If I can, I’ll post digital pics of some of it.

Have a restful Sunday.
