Someone came to me in the shop one day and said ” Your pictures look religious, I’m not religious. I nearly died. If God was real why did he put me through that?”
“I said God is real and that’s why you didn’t die and your stood here !”
“Oh” She said…
She loved poppies and as she spoke I could feel the intensity and the vivid image of the poppies. So I wanted to express this on canvas.
The piece is called ‘Love You Forever’
I felt the vibrance and intensity of the colour would be representative of the impact people leave on our lives. ‘Love You Forever’ symbolises the ripples made by those close to us. Our hearts never forget and go on loving forever.
Although poppies are renowned for remembrance, I wanted to represent joy. For in the Kingdom of GOD there is no end, and therefore we have nothing to fear. For in the Kingdom of GOD we can rejoice that we will see those raised in Christ again, one day soon.
So today we choose to live life to the full and impact as many people as we can with joy and the good news of Jesus. Vibrantly and full of expectancy making ripples of our own.
