I led a retreat day for a church recently. As well as your usual ingredients of worship, prayer and copious amounts of coffee and cake, we did a meditation on their ‘guiding verse’ for the year. In fact we did a Lectio Divina (Divine Reading) of Psalm 46 in which their key verse appears:

Be still and know that I am God.

As we read through the scriptures they became alive in my imagination and I felt like I would burst! Especially the few verses that declares:

 There is a river of joy flowing through the city of our God—the sacred home of the God above all gods.  God himself is living in that city; therefore it stands unmoved despite the turmoil everywhere. He will not delay his help. The nations rant and rave in anger—but when God speaks, the earth melts in submission and kingdoms totter into ruin. (verses 4-6)

I had to paint something in response, and out flowed two paintings in joyful colours!

It jumped out at me that the river of Joy described in this Psalm runs right into the midst of ‘turmoil everywhere.’

Where you may feel turmoil and despair may you know of the One who runs a river of joy into you, right into the core of your being!

The original painting measures 76cm by 76cm.

------------------------------------------

Printed on the super matt finish of Hahnemüle German Etching, this print gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail.

The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so I recommend extra care when handling. Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

The limited edition print comes signed on the back with The title of the painting too and what limited print number it is too.
