Day 5: Be Exalted Above The Heavens


This was one of the first paintings I ever did with my hands.  I am known around the church as the “girl who paints circles with her hands.”  You may see a common thread of circles or swirls in my art.

When I look at this painting, I see glory!  God desires to bring His glory on the earth.  He desires to use YOU to bring it.  Did you know that God’s glory resides in you, on you and through you?

*This painting was done entirely with my hands.

    Beautiful! Curious. What got you started painting with your hands? What type of paint? On canvas? How long have you painted? So glad you are sharing your art! Blessings.

      HI Anne! I have been painting about 5 years. Our church has an arts ministry and I saw others do it and was truly inspired. I have no art training, so picking up a paint brush to try to paint something is hard for me. One day I decided I was going to paint with my hands and do abstract art. I am always inspired by the Holy Spirit and amazed at what He does through me.

      I use high end acrylic paint on canvass.
