This is a piece created especially for a historian/writer who researches areas in the UK where spiritual revivals have taken place. He had a very clear idea of what he wanted and had been looking for an artist to rise to the challenge for a few years!
I’m very glad I was able to make his vision a reality. As I painted round the coastline of the UK I felt God’s tenderness towards all the people living in this land and that nowhere is forgotten.
The writing took a long time – painstakingly and very slowly applying Instacoll size in three layers before applying the gold leaf. It is beautifully reflective and luxurious; the King deserves nothing less.
These three words are being prayed and prophesied over this nation by many believers. Despite the imperfection in our society, God remains good and wants to do good to everyone. It is His righteousness, truth and justice that we long to see influencing our nation.
Personally I feel inclined to take a step back from the arguments and division over Brexit, and look as the Lord does, to see the whole. I feel the “bird’s eye view” of this picture represents the helpfulness of taking a broad perspective, as we seek His wisdom for the way forward.

After having acquired a new skill in gold lettering, I now have ideas for Bible verses that I would like to see as paintings. My next idea as one of my own paintings is from Psalm 96:9 “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” – with the lettering in a similar style as above, all in gold, on a white/cream background with wispy clouds and heavenly shapes.
I also think a sunset/sunrise with waves would work well with the words “From the rising to the setting of the sun, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” (Psalm 113:3)
