This is one of my most iconic paintings that has been turned into cards and prints.
This original is now offered for sale after 4 years living in our home! (I wasn’t allowed to sell it as my wife loved it so much!) We’ve now replaced it with other paintings of mine in the home- Encouraging that Mrs D loves more than 1 of my creations!
Coracle adventure is all about walking by faith and not by sight- it’s the call for every follower of Jesus.
While following Him can be terrifying, He asks His friends to trust in Him. Even suffering and heart ache become the catalyst for strength and new adventures when submitting to Him.
I draw my inspiration first and foremost through prayer and this painting is no exception.
The stories of ancient Celtic Saints inspire me and their missional lives. Some would dare to get into a coracle and pray, ‘Lord of the wind and the waves, take us your servants to where you will.’ They would then push out into the expanse of the sea and with childlike faith believe that God would take them where He wanted them to go and spread the good news.
Their example inspires me to daily walk in the slipstream of Jesus being pushed out to share the good news of Jesus wherever I go.
This painting has been created on a thin edge canvas and measures approx 100cm by 145cm. Ive used acrylic inks, spray paint and acrylic paint.
