This work is by Jan Richardson and you can read more about her interpretation at The Painted Prayerbook.
When you look at these pieces of art and think about the Word you might also ponder:
- what title would you give the art?
- what feeling do the colors give you?
- what does the artist want you to think/feel about what is in the artwork?
- what does this art mean to you?
We respond to art in personal ways. These two very different works can both serve a purpose in relating to the lectionary text this week. How wonderful that have such a wealth of art to respond to.
