This painting has been part of an exhibition called 'Light In Darkness' at Foxhill House, an Anglican Retreat Centre in Cheshire and measure 120 by 80cm. 

This painting alongside the others in the exhibition were born out of prayer for people who were in pain and despair. Through a number of hurting situations ranging from those close to home to chance meetings with strangers, I have felt in my being a painful empathy. As I've been moved, I've responded through the only way I know: Painting. The brush has become my weapon for prayers and as I have painted abstract forms and playfully allowed the paint to flow and create new patterns, my despair has turned to hope. The light breaking through the dark depths I have felt. It hasn't been a cathartic experience, rather an intercessory one. Within this painting process, I have been strengthened by meditating on scripture.

This abstract painting Joy In Darkness reveals galaxies. The mystery is that Big God comes to us in our darkness and shines light.

It's created using mixed media, pastels, powder paint, acrylic, lots of water, inks and varnishes to create a textured abstract painting.
