Lent 2019

The Stations of the Cross II: Jesus takes up His Cross

I am so pleased to tell you that the book More Prayers with a God of Love has sold really well and we’re down to single figures! Thank you to everyone who has bought a copy, we have already sent a cheque to Open Doors for the monies raised so far.

I am considering mounting the original paintings I did for the book and offering them for sale unframed … watch this space!

We are in Lent as I write this, and I wanted to share with you a series of paintings I have done; The Stations of the Cross.

It’s a theme I’m really interested in and am contemplating doing other sets, or series, including acrylic on canvas. I’m always drawn to the Stations of the Cross in churches I visit, which often then inspire me to produce my own interpretation.

These are gouache on watercolour paper with a double mount, I am not selling the originals but would take commissions, contact me for details. (Please excuse the photography, to avoid the reflections in the glass, I had to take the pictures from an angle so they look a little twisted.)

Thank you for your interest in my work,

Shirley

More Prayers with a God of Love

I’m absolutely delighted to tell you that following the success of our last book “Prayers with a God of Love” we have just brought out our new book “More Prayers with a God of Love”. We’re happy to say that profits will be going to the charity “Open Doors” so we are praying that it sells well!

It’s been an enjoyable challenge to attempt to capture with my paintings, Selwyn’s beautiful poetic prayers and reflections. I hope you’ll love them as much as we do.

Back to the drawing board … I’m busy designing Christmas cards in August!
