Renewal of Creation
Renewal of Life
Renewal of Sight
Renewal of Hope
Renewal of Spirit
A friend recently described one of the images above as a “visual mantra” … a partnering of words that was very pleasing to my soul.
Inspired by prayers written by Rev. Melissa Johnson Bills for the Tenth Triennial Gathering of the Women of the ELCA, it’s my hope that working on the images is preparing me for the “All Anew” theme of the Gathering.
Finisterre… a place of wild imagination!

The same Spirit that hovered over the waters at the beginning of creation hovers over the mind of the artist at work. ~St. Thomas Aquinas
Sometimes Big Love comes in such seemingly small encounters.
I’ve begun an instagram account for Grunewald Guild called grunewald_graces. You can find it here: https://www.instagram.com/grunewald_graces/. It’s a gathering of little encounters with nature that grant glimpses of Big Love.
Manantiales en el Desierto… Streams in the Desert
This image served as inspiration for a mural painted at the Lutheran Church Manantiales en el Desierto in the community of Guazapa, El Salvador, in February 2016.
Deeply felt love requires expression. ~Sr John Miriam Jones
art = spirit + matter + creativity
Inspired by messages from Kristin Gilje and Anne Mulleniex… So much creative spirit to ponder and process. I am grateful for the parenthesis of sacred space here at the Grunewald Guild.
Welcome to my first post created while at the Grunewald Guild! I gave myself a little time with pre-scheduled posts and older journaling images during June and part of July. Now I’m back in the saddle and blogging journal images from Weeks 3 and 4 of the Guild’s summer program.
