Empowered was painted live at the 2023 Fresh Streams conference. Empowered was the theme of the conference and this painting is all about the Holy Spirit coming to us.
The painting was created with layers of pastel, water, acrylics, spray paint and more pastels.
The text of the baptism of Jesus is within the background:
When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” (Luke 3- from the Bible.)
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.
