Live Painting demonstration: Worship Art

Back in March of 2012, my pastor came to me with this “crazy” idea. He wanted to do something “monumental,” something that no one in our church had seen before, tags a kick off to the year-long sermon series we were starting using the book “The Story,” which basically takes the Bible and arranges it chronologically rather than in the traditional arrangements of the books.

L (my pastor) and I decided to attempt some live worship art, where I would be painting during his sermon on the Creation, and in the middle of the sermon, he would come “ruin” the painting by throwing black paint all over it (to represent sin). Then I would work during the rest of the sermon to “fix” the painting, as God works to fix us and our sin. We added an extra bonus at the end. All the “fixing” I was doing on the canvas was really turning the mountain and sunset scene that I was painting into a portrait of Jesus.

God was with us that day, because we never practiced the painting before we gave that that sermon, and boy, did it turn out awesome!!! Enjoy the pictures 🙂

Here we go! Starting the sunset, thinking “Be like Bob Ross!”

L, of course, managed to paint over my favorite part of the painting! I was really happy with how the sunburst effect was looking… And then…. Poof! Gone.

Thinking, “It’s okay! I can fix this!”
