I recently posted this image on Facebook asking, "What do we have here?". Art has the wonderful capability of being whatever the viewer sees it to be or makes them feel. I think that is why I love art, both viewing it and making it. Creating an image that means something different to each viewer is fascinating. Think about how fascinating we are to God, who created each one of us uniquely individual, yet with a broader "big picture" design in mind for our purpose in community. "For You formed my inward parts:..." Psalm 139:13 This art image is actually a zoomed in/close up of a "part" of a much larger painting. Looking at just a glimpse of the whole you see textures, layer upon layer of color, and different brushstrokes that are very abstract (which by the way is a fun exercise to try when looking at art anytime-seeking art inside of art!). God's creation is no different. If you teach yourself to see creatively, you'll find art inside of art everywhere. Even in yourself. You'll discover layers("like an onion"-thank you Shrek!) if you look close enough. He is a God of detailed parts and expansive wholes.
"I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well." Psalm 139:14
