Storm Over Superior
God is found in my everyday prayer of Thanksgiving for the light, the trees covered with frost after a foggy night, the love and devotion of my 15-year-old puppy, the memories from the past, of Lake Superior and moments of peace scanning the horizon—the clouds present with the promise of calm weather or the awesome power of an approaching storm. There is always is the recognition of an Almighty God that holds the weather in the palm of his hand.

Mountains of Spices
I hope my art will make people smile and remind them that God still exists and loves them.
I am a lay contemplative, whimsical artist and a convert from Judaism. My love for the Blessed Sacrament and the scriptures gets me through these times.
This piece is inspired by the Song of Songs, the Yedid Nefesh (Beloved of the Soul), and a Meadow, Mountain, Chapel meditation that I had to do.

As an artist I am attracted to all of God's beauty in nature, and especially to waterfalls. God is ever present in nature, and especially in flowing water. I paint nature outdoors, on location, year around, to fully experience nature as it happens.
It is my pleasure to share this image with you, and I hope it better guides you to experiencing God in nature.

About this Exhibit
Seeing God: An Exhibit of Sacred Art is virtual for 2021. To continue this important, long-standing exhibit, we are moving it online this year. While the Gallery at St. Paul’s Monastery is not physically open to hang this exhibit, we still need art, especially now. Artists' work will speak to the following questions: What challenges and what blessings are you experiencing as you live and make art now? How are you Seeing God during this unprecedented time? Where are you Seeing God? During this pause in the Benedictine Center programming, this exhibit will provide a much-needed source of inspiration to those who would otherwise come to the monastery. Entries will be posted online throughout February and March. VIEW ALL SEEING GOD 2021 POSTS.
