Can artwork be a prayer?

The roses on the Orly Avineri Soft Bones stencil I used this week called to me.

As I was doing the Hop Project I kept thinking of the roses as a blessing.

I know Blessings aren't to be taken lightly...
Just as sincere prayers are serious stuff, too.

I had a friend in mind, someone I adore.
A family I hold near and dear to my heart.

I painted four figures.
They are not true portraits of my friend and her kids...
But they are a reflection of how my heart sees them.
They are a beautiful family.

I poured my prayers out for them as I worked on this piece.

I wrote scriptures....and prayers...and blessings in the background.

There are Layers and Layers of both Paint and Prayers.

Like Rain may the Blessings Fall on my Friend and her sweet children.

Do you make prayers this same way?


  1. Hmmm. I never thought of praying this way, but it's a very interesting idea. Thanks for sharing.....Linda E.

  2. I love this intention, Janet. What a special piece.

  3. Love this piece Janet, beautiful way of expressing your love and spirit for your friend. xox

  4. This is wonderful!!! Full of blessings. Love, LOVE, L O V E the flowers.
