Art & Seek!

The Forest & The Trees  24x48
By My Spirit<br />
30 x 40<br />
<br />
This painting is a creative depiction of moving forward into the call of God on your life. When you are in a season of waiting it can be tempting to start thinking that God is waiting for you to make something happen and while obedience is of utmost importance, taking matters into your own hands in order to speed up the timeline you are on will never bear good fruit. The fruition of the call of God in your life happens from a place of complete Rest and Surrender, trusting God to be God of every detail, including timing, power and resources. Everything He has called you to do will bear good and lasting fruit only when accomplished by the Spirit of the living God within you. Don’t be tempted to fret during the season of waiting. Enjoy waiting on Him. Keep your senses tuned to His presence and His word, letting the cry of your heart be a quick “Yes and Amen” to his direction.<br />
The person’s posture of active surrender in this painting symbolizes this attitude of waiting on Him in alert readiness. The swirling movement throughout the piece represents the distinct and intentional movement of Holy Spirit as He brings the word of direction to achieve His purposes. The winged figure in the top left is a symbol of Rest; reminding you that it is not by your might or power but by His Spirit that His purposes are accomplished both in and through you.

Art & Seek! is an 8 week course designed to take its participants on a journey into the heart of God. We assign a variety of fine arts projects specifically developed to engage your heart, imagination and creative capacity in order to learn how to quiet your busy life and tune into what God is personally speaking to you. Each project is planned to take two weeks to complete with the majority of the work taking place within class time. We will utilize sculpting, painting and collaging skills however, it is not necessary for you to be proficient in any or all of these areas. This class serves both the amateur and professional artist. The most important quality we look for is an appreciation for beauty and a willingness to step outside your comfort zone and try new things. This class will raise your artistic skills while deepening your understanding of the heart of God to promote healing and wholeness in your life. Come join us on this beautiful journey of self-discovery!
