"The Path" for Church Sanctuary

The husband was helpful not only in putting together a large easel for this project, but also in finding appropriate scriptures for this painting journey.  Each panel is 24" x 36".  Three panels together equals 6 feet in width by 3 feet in height.  A foot of negative space on the wall between panel will make the project 8 feet in width.  All panels were painted in acrylics.  "The Path" will be displayed for the autumn portion of Ordinary Times in the liturgical calendar of the church.

I Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  (KJV) )

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

Psalms 23:4

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Deuteronomy  2:7

The LORD your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast wilderness. These forty years the LORD your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything. (NIV)

Isaiah 35:8
And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it.

John 8:12
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (NIV)

Proverbs 4:18
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. (NIV)

Psalms 16:11
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. (NIV)

Linking to Paint Party Friday.


  1. that's interesting... I would like to place them different : with a little distance between and not in the same line - do not want to try?
    thank you for your visit and comments

  2. Supposedly a foot apart...will ask the "committee"

  3. What a beautiful threesome with some really awesome scriptures to accompany them! If they don't have winter, spring, and summer assigned, I think you should do the same trees in all the seasons. Thank you for sharing this work of art with us on PPF.

  4. Looks great.

    Jennifer did a batik years and years ago that was a 4 panel project. My mother hung it in her living room. I do not know what became of it since my Mother went away.


  5. Nancy this is beautiful, it takes you straight to a spiritual level and the Bible excerpts hubby has given to the picture are such a good focus. I hope many people see and enjoy your painting but the most pleased of all, of course, will be our God as your painting is undoubtedly worship at its best.

  6. Wow that looks like a piece of Stanley park in Vancouver nailed it...

    Hugs Giggles
