Mixed Media ( Acrylic paint and paper) on gallery wrap canvas.

There are also prints made from this original painting.

This painting is made with acrylic paint and also has torn pages from old hymnals, sheet music and other beautiful paper added to the layers to give it texture and also to make the painting "sing".

This hymn, "In the Garden" was one of my grandmother's and my dad's favorite hymns and it's also one of my mom's favorites. It's an old hymn and I didn't grow up singing it very often. But oh, the more I think about these words and let them settle into my heart and bones, they are so dear and tender.

The lyrics reveal such a gentle way of walking close to Jesus.

There is no sense of rushing or being too busy... it's a time to be present and embrace the grace of God's kindness. And talking with God in a beautiful garden sounds like a perfect place.

"I come to the garden alone

While the dew is still on the roses.

And the voice I hear falling on my ear

The Son of God discloses.

And He walks with me and He talks with me.

And He tells me I am His own;

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

None other has ever known. ( C. Austin Miles)
