Moment of Grace by Linda McCray

"and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us."

Romans 5:5

Moment of Grace
by Linda McCray

There is nothing like the feeling of a grace filled moment when you know you are not alone, but in God’s presence. There are a number of ways to translate transcendent reality into paint. To form visible signs of invisible grace, I use abstraction which—so powerfully through color, line, and texture—speaks directly to the heart. I layer my paintings with symbolism by using abstract elements, certain materials, and selected painting methods. Throughout the ages, artists have used gold to convey divinity. In this painting, the modern drip line symbolizes “God’s love has been poured into our hearts.” The red paint in the lowest corner expresses us opening our hearts to receive grace. The diamond shape does not rest as a square does. It adds the ethereal feel of a moment of grace.
