Art Stories: Paper Doll | Into Marvelous Light

print quality into marvelous lightInto Marvelous Light

Your word is a lamp to my feet,

and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 (NKJV)

She walks in darkness

Bathed in light carrying the fire of His delight

She lives to share the amazing story

Of her transformed heart

declaring His glory

Into Marvelous Light was born in less than 24 hours as Michelle prayed over the annual Ignite Women’s Conference at church. She missed the last prayer meeting as she sketched out and painted the paper elements of the picture in just a few hours. The next night during the after party, she developed the background of the painting working live and visiting with conference attendees throughout the night. The logo and theme for the conference was “FREE” with a black and white striped background sporting a Gold Butterfly emblazoned with the word Free on it. As she painted she heard the Lord whisper, “My Word is truly a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.” She arrived home late and assembled the painting fixing the doll onto the canvas with heavy coats of gloss varnish. She had it back at the church the next morning for the women to see it and as she sat with it for a while she sensed the Lord saying the painting was a representation of the transformation of the women’s heart who attended the conference that weekend.
