A month or so ago I was asked to begin contributing to a wonderful Bible reading plan blog called Pick Your Portion. The reading plan used is called the M’Cheyne Bible Reading Plan which selects four different portions of scripture for each day so that you read through the Bible in one year. Each day during the week there is a post based on the scripture selections for the day. It may be a devotional post or an art response.
I’ve been asked to create an art response once a month. I can use any medium or approach I choose: graphic design, photography, watercolor, oils, collage, etc. I’m looking forward to experimenting with various mediums in the future, as one of my goals for this year was to go back to my fine arts roots and not rely on graphic design or photography as much.
But when I selected the scripture for yesterday’s post, this image I took in Emerald Isle, NC immediately came to mind. It spoke of peace and wholeness to me. The ocean is where I feel most at peace in spirit and body, so I chose it to be the image for my art response.
