God and Art

I have been thinking allot about God and art lately. Does God inpsire art? Why does art transcend language, class and cultural barriers? Can art be used to communicate with God or even better, let God communicate with us?

In the past, this would seem strange coming from me. I have been lukewarm to the concept of God but I have been doing a bit of soul searching lately.

In every temple and church there is artwork in the holiest of places and the best art is saved for the most holy places. I was inspired by this video of Elizabeth Gilbert who wrote the book Eat Pray Love. She discusses a bit about an artists relationship with God.

What do you think?

Great Day

I had a great day with the kids, we rode bikes, sold lemonade door to door, went to the movies and had a play date. Here is some of Hope’s artwork.
