Religious Painting

On a whim I started painting, it was very much a disaster to start with.  Some might say it still is, however, I have started to find my artists voice – as they say – and while I continue to paint in a variety of ways I have found that contemplation as I prepared sermons or liturgies I found expressing with paint and canvas.

In this section of my blog you will find the art works I have done associated to religion, with some of my thought process behind them.

Should you wish you are welcome to use any of these images as long as you are not using them for profit, there is no need to attribute them if they are used within a religious context.  They are arranged through the Liturgical Year with the more general ones being at the end.
