I didn't really know how to convey the majesty of the wings of God, so I left that part for last, and it suddenly occurred to me that the shadow of the cross also looks a bit like the shadow of wings. I like that mixed metaphor. However, I don't like the fact that it almost looks like she's on the cross herself -- that was not my intent at all. Also, at the risk of sounding self-deprecating, I need to learn how to draw faces -- and bodies for that matter! LOL
I wasn't quite satisfied with the above attempt, though, so I tried again today:
Of course, the same issues apply, but it was fun to explore the same verse with some variation in images. And it felt really good to just be creative.
Again I wonder -- what are some other ways you and I might respond to scripture in creative ways? Repeatedly, I find myself drawn to visual responses. The CED challenge theme for April is the senses, and it sure has made me aware of how significant vision is to me. I really should challenge myself to try responding with some other sense. I might surprise myself.
