Filmed over the space of a few days but edited to ten minutes. Congratulations to Lydia Howe for her mastery of the lens and her way with people. Thanks for showing that the arts are well catered for alongside all the other good works carried out on a daily basis by LIF.
The Suffering Servant. Isaiah’s prophecy. Written out as an exercise in 1987. (Practice, Positive Practice).
Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Wishing all my friends, wherever you are, a Happy, Peaceful, and Prosperous New Year and that your Calligraphy skills will take you to new levels over the next 12 months.
This year, a bit of brushwork, not too badly executed for an old boy who has recently undergone cataract surgery on both eyes and has not yet been prescribed new specs. More on this later but I am hoping to be back to my old self by the end of January and will soon be able to pick up where I left off and spend more time concocting a lesson or two.
Keep watching this space.
I thought you might like to see the work of an old acquaintance I met again recently at the funeral of a mutual friend. I have been amazed by the quality of her images. Especially the Icons which are her real passion. Enjoy and please follow the Blog.
Hello, nice to meet you.
This is a collection of pictures which I have painted over many years. Some are icons, some seascapes. Most I still have, but a considerable number have found their way to other homes over the years; Russia, Alaska, the US, Australia and mostly the UK. They are in chapels, churches and privately owned by bishops, priests and lay people.
The majority of the icons are derived from existing images, the older, the better, but there are a few which are more modern, and painted from photographs.
I am an Anglican. I paint on canvas with acrylic, which is not the traditional way to paint icons but my little saints don’t seem to mind. I write the name of the person depicted on the front in paint, and only sign my name on the back in pencil when I am sending it to a new home…
