Interim Illustration - Live Painting at LCF

Apologies - this is not an 'old face' but it is what has consumed me and some of the LCF Creative Arts Team for the past week - and it is an actual 'illustration'.
The text is from Galations 5:22-23: "... the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control..." Seven of us worked on this one. We painted the trunk and leaves ready for the 'live painting' event this morning. I painted the oranges last night before it was mounted on the wall as it would be difficult to reach once it was up and so I had time to focus on writing the words. One of the artists used steps to paint the grapes. Each of us had our own fruit to paint but, as I had painted the oranges last night, I simply wrote the related words beneath the fruit once each artist had finished painting.
It was great to work together while Alan was speaking and the audience reaction was fantastic - many people came onto the stage and photographed it after the meeting. Thanks everyone!

  1. I like the intertwined trunks - they are a very strong symbol.
