Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina

150cm x 120cm x 3cm

Oil on canvas

Although Lectio Divina traditionally only has four aspects (read, meditate, pray, contemplate), some modern versions include expressing the contemplation through creativity.  This work is such an expression.  A nebular quality, which is a key motif, allows the work to have a certain peacefulness, avoiding sharp angles or too-bright colour.  It should, in turn, allow the perceiver a measure of the contemplation that preceded the painting.
