Jesus Painting from Hem of His Garment Conference at Bethel Church

Jesus' face has been painted many times through out history. This is my spin on the age old paintings. During the conference this last week I felt lead to try and paint it once again. I had the privilege of painting on stage Friday afternoon for the close of the conference. It turned out differently than planned but I think it was for the better. I used a technique I had never used before that I sort of stumbled upon with the Holy Spirit's help. I painted 'wet on wet' on raw canvas with pre-primed sections. Definitely fun ragging on most of the paint. I even messed up on His left eye and later realized the mark formed his iris. Pretty cool I thought. God healed many people this last week which was amazing to witness and be apart of, but I have to say one of my favorite parts was watching so many people get ridiculously drunk in the spirit and filled with joy (including myself). Yes, there is joy in his presence! May this painting impart joy to your life today knowing that you have been purchased for a price, your sins are covered by his blood, your health has been PAID FOR in full! God is so Good!

After I finished painting it people began asking me if I added gold sparkles because there was a sparkle in Jesus' eye that kept catching the light. I didn't use any metallic or gold paint, not even a paint with a sheen, just flat acrylic paint. More and more golden sparkles have begun showing up in different places over the canvas.

Wow, I am so excited to see you on our Etsy's CAPS Team. My husband and I love Bill Johnson and Bethel Church in Redding. We want to go there so bad, and he wants to attend school there, but God is still doing other things right now. I hope to chat more with you and will definitely tell my hubby about you guys. I'm sure he'd love to say Hi too. I've always wanted to do painting while worshiping. I've play keyboard and have just started getting into space painting among the gazillion other things I do so I am looking forward to cranking the Jesus Culture, getting in the spirit, and making some painting ;). God Bless, check out my blog too. Oh, and sorry for writing a book :)

Beautiful! I just stumbled upon your blog when I did a search on "verses about prophetic art." Our church has sent a few students to Bethel's school, one of whom is an artist and does prophetic art as well. Thank you for sharing! I'll be following your blog now and I hope to get to know you better! Blessings!
