painting for day 50 exhibition

Here's how my painting for the CMS day 50 exhibition is looking. In this piece I wanted to explore the idea in the Jesus tradition that God's activity cannot be contained by our imagination but is a dynamic dance that embraces all life, all places and all times.

chaos and hope

Here's the painting I did for the StillPoint Stations of the Cross exhibition - I called it 'chaos and hope' - and here's the text that goes with it: There’s an important tradition that in the chaos of his violent and sudden death Jesus somehow holds into himself all the chaos and violence of humanity. In so doing he makes clear  that despite their power, our chaos and violence will never be the final word. In the storm of his death there appears a fragile but compelling trace of hope for humanity and for the cosmos.
