I love to experiment with different mediums and I used acrylic paint for this particular piece. I’m not a professional artist but I did enjoy letting my imagination run with this theme. I layered different colors of grey and then just started creating the tree by laying the limbs with my brush. Then I added some blue to show the life blood of the tree.
I see a tree as a lot of different things. Strength is one of them. When we are strong in the Lord our roots are in his word. We can’t stand through storms with not roots. I also see good and evil in trees because the tree itself is good but the things that attach to the tree can be deadly to the tree such as disease or rot. We must stand firm constantly watching for the lords return while we keep an eye on our branches. Keeping the pruned with his word, keeping them healthy with prayer and keeping them clean with the Holy Spirit. When we’ve done all we can do to stand we just stand rooted in his word and we can weather the storms of evil that rage agaiabst is.
