This piece had been stirring around in my mind for some time... It all started with my recent peeked interest with mixed-media collage. I have been reading and inspired by the book, Taking Flight by author an artist, Kelly Rae Roberts and have been having a blast playing around with collage while learning new techniques. Actually, while I have had other projects going, I kept sneaking off to attend to my collage. I really think I heard it calling me!
Well, I have finally finished and want to share it with you.
This mixed-media painting portrays the stuggle we have with our sin that keeps us trapped. But, the good news is, the Truth will set us free! and when we live outside of our self-imposed "cages", we experience grace, hope, and life. I often need to remind myself of this reality.
There are lots and lots of layers....
I used wire to create the cage
stamps, old hymnals and worship bulletins, page from a Bible,
wire, rhinestones, skeleton key, ribbon
I hope all who read this have experienced that same freedom in Christ, and if not, I hope and pray that your heart will yearn for the freedom that the gospel of Jesus Christ can give you!
