O’ Lord, I am reaching out to You! – Robert Shawcross
I found that compiling a painting or work that directly relates to the theme of the Mandorla Art Prize quite challenging to a point where I could not think of a painting worthy to submit.
Late last year, however, I decided that I should draw my left hand for life drawing practice and render it in red chalk and charcoal. When half way through my third drawing, I realised then that I had a work that would relate to the theme!
‘O’ Lord, I am reaching out to You’ is my personal quest to seek God’s direction and accept what is written in the scriptures. It is also expressing my need of God into my life…and thus to walk humbly with Him.
