Seeking His Face – David Lane

24 February, 2020

I was inspired by the end of Micah 6:8: “to walk humbly with your God”. This motivated me to express the intimacy of walking with God through a portrait of my own father (“O man”). The scripture encouraged me to think upon the “radiance” when we look to God, expressed by David in Psalm 34:5.
I began by finding Biblical references to “walking with God” and used these scriptures for the highlights in my mixed media artwork. This symbolises the radiance of God shining in the face. The Micah 6:8 passage was intentionally placed on the ear to represent the importance of hearing God’s word (Romans 15:4). Acrylic paint was flicked onto the canvas with a brush and also applied with a palette knife.
