I realise that I haven’t updated for a while, so I just thought I would add this post to show some of my new paintings. I will also be adding a post about an Arts exhibition that I was involved in recently, so please look out for that.
A while back I posted about a dream that I had and posted what I thought God was speaking to me about in it. You can look back at that post if you would like; it was entitled “The Reluctant Time traveller and the Orange tree in the Garden.” Just click the link below, read and come back here…
Eventually I was inspired to paint some imagery from this dream. So here it is; it is entitled “God the Gardener.”
I was also at that time looking at Genesis. So another painting I have completed recently is entitled “The Fall” and as you can see it is Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Lastly I want to share my most recent painting entitled “Blue Jay and Jacaranda” and it also was inspired by a dream; this was a dream that I had many years ago, over 20 years ago in fact. In that dream I was actually shown a little blue bird in the Tree of Life, which had every fruit possible in it ( I didn’t include the fruit in this painting but it had the feeling of the bird in the tree. ) In the dream the bird told me what fruit to eat to bring me healing. And it did heal me.
So, a little while ago I was ill with a strange vertigo bug and after having healing at church, which led to me being on the floor with the Holy Spirit working in my head ( my eyes behind my closed lids were going nineteen to the dozen and I knew God was healing me.) This wasn’t an immediate healing, although I had no dizziness the next day, I did still have it on and off for a while but I definitely felt the healing. But after this healing I was reminded of the dream and took the fruit I had been told to have in that dream as part of my healing. Then I painted this picture.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of my new paintings and as you can see they are all very much to do with God the Gardener, who once walked with us in a garden that he created just for us! He walked with us and talked with us and gave us the job of looking after the garden and everything in it.
Unfortunately we let sin into the garden which polluted it. One day we will be given permission to eat from the actual tree of life once more; God really does want to walk and commune with us again as it was in the beginning.
That snake Satan may have reached out to bruise the heel of Man but Jesus, though bruised has crushed that snake’s head once and for all and he will not enter the garden again. I for one cannot wait to walk up that golden path and reach out to pluck the fruit from the tree of life and spend an eternity communing with God -my creator who from the beginning had amazing plans for us, his beloved children.
Wow! We just cannot imagine the amazing things in store for us in the garden our Heavenly Father has prepared for us.
