From a lovely lunch alfresco, it was good to be able to step out of the heat of the day (yes, I do mean heat for those of you who find it hard to believe it is ever hot in Scotland) in to the cool barn where Alan Storkey waited to expand the theme. His paintings and word pictures took us on a journey of seeing the glory in God’s creation everywhere. Through the colours of the changing seasons, to the rich variety of textures in nature. Inspiring!
Alan asked for comments on how we see glory in art. Various people commented. Some offering poems, or word pictures they themselves had been inspired to write whilst in that seminar. One woman expressed her great desire to be able to paint since seeing the splendour of God’s artistry one evening since coming to Clan – a rainbow and sunset in one.
Another lady spoke about her experience in being released in drawing and painting. She had always wanted to do so but it was not until attending a clan type event where she heard a missionary say the richest land in the country was the cemetery which held a host of unrealised potential. With Gods help she did something about it and was being encouraged by peoples positive response to her art.
