I was inspried to create this drawing while visiting a praise service. Everything about the gathering was excitings, the singing, dancing the color. I was engrossed with it all to the point that I could imagin the Spirit of God hovering over the congregation watching. I did a quick sketch of my "vision" and began working on a larger sketch that evening. I was also inspired to incorporate symbols into the image. At the top is the Star of David or the Eastern Star. I learned that the top point of the star reaches toward the heavens while the lower points toward the earth, where mankind dwells, Our praise and prayers travel up to the heavens and our blessings travel down. Copies of the print are available on Zazzle, on my icons.
