Painting the “Refuge”

My new favourite style of  painting is word collage freestyle. 

I collage computer printed copies of hand-written words or poetry onto a painted canvas or surface, and add colour in assorted new ways, including using a palette knife, plastic bags, feathers and even paint brushes!

For Refuge, I used names from the Bible that describe God.  The words in the painting are not obvious unless one takes a close look at the original painting. The parallel is that underneath the turmoil of our lives, God is our Refuge.
