What story does this picture tell you?
It can mean whatever you want it to, honestly. It’s art! And who’s going to know? But if you do think of something, I would like it if you would leave your thoughts in the comments box.
Here’s what I was thinking when I drew it:
I was sharing in an evening of spiritual reflection with an artist in the church I was doing mission with. She encouraged us to imagine a scene.
we were told to imagine we were walking down a quiet path to somewhere peaceful. I imagined a small beach in a natural harbour. And I walked down the path towards a bench. There was no one else around.
I sit down, and sit a short while. After a time I am joined by another figure. As God sits next to me, a knot bunches in my stomach, and I can’t look at him. I swallow back my dry throat. I know he is looking at me. We were told to imagine what God might tell us or sow us at this point, but no words came to mind.
He goes to put his arm around me, but the knot in my stomach ascends to my throat and I promptly get up. Not looking back, I walk quickly away.
And thus you see the drawing above.
But what story do you see in this picture?
