In Your Hands – Anne Wines
God is walking with us. In my painting, ‘In Your Hands’ I have used representational imagery to highlight our problems: climate change, melting icecaps, flooding, people displacement, walls built to keep people out or in. Symbolic imagery reveals God’s unvarying message to us to walk with Him, acknowledge Him as our God, care for our environment, live peacefully and justly, share resources. A mountain range bathed in light reflects His glory. A crown of thorns urges humility and sacrifice. But it is the central figure holding the world that is our focus. This figure represents you, the viewer. It represents each one of us. The choices are ours to make, not God’s. Our future is in our hands.
