This month C.cada, our church’s artists community took a trip to the Worcester Fine Museum of Fine Arts.
C.cada is a community dedicated to helping artists from all genres discover, develop and then deploy their gifts for the benefit of the church and the community.
Our trip this month came on the heals of our annual art show and was a way for us to both kick back and then get some fresh inspiration for the artistic work we will do in 2017.
This painting was my favorite of the day. This lady seems to be in the midst of some intense study. I think the book opened and leaning against the wall must be a Bible and she has obviously been writing in her journal. The quill and glasses are pushed aside as she turns to God for a moment in prayer. The skull and hourglass are symbols of her mindfullness that her time is limited but look how much time is left in the glass. This lady knows her earthly pilgrimage is far from done.
