‘But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect…‘ Hebrews 12:22,23
When painting this in worship, I felt an angelic presence laughing and singing with joy. The gates had been opened with thanksgiving. I felt the presence of many worshippers. The painting represents worship ripping open the veil between first and third heaven.
I ‘saw’ a huge winged warrior opening a heavenly portal, and I sensed true worship taking place in an atmosphere of holy humility. I painted anointing oil dripping through the portal. When the true worshipper begins to worship, the Lord of Hosts gathers His army together, ready to send them through the opening worship creates. When you worship, you create an atmosphere for God to reveal Himself. When you go down on your knees, it is not the end of the battle, but just the beginning. His army takes over where you lay spent. Your humility before the Lord is anchored in His immense majesty. Reverence for the Lord is an essence of true worship.
I sense Him calling you His ‘winged warrior of worship’. It is also an invitation for you to go beyond yourself, forget your striving, and to enter into the ‘joyful assembly’. He invites you to be caught up in a glorious rhythm that originates in heaven, where unending worship comes up as a memorial before Him. He will pour out His anointed glory through you as you seek after Him in your private time and space.
There is a sense of mystery in the painting that symbolises the wonder of the Lord, that we may know Him but be continually discovering Him. The Lord loves how you know worship as a sacrifice of self, a relinquishing of understanding, and a ministering to the Lord single-mindedly. He is giving you ears to hear the many voices around the throne.
‘Winged Warrior ’ has been selected from the book 40 Days hath November to be reproduced as Giclee prints. Technically speaking, our prints are not prints at all, not in the common use of the term, but are fine art reproductions of original works. The quality is so high that it is difficult to tell between the reproduction and the original. Giclee Reproductions are premium high-resolution digital images produced on museum quality, Canson 300-320gsm Cotton Rag (fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) printed with archival Canon Lucia EX 12-colour pigment high-performance inks. Canon Lucia EX pigment inks achieve an “under glass” permanence of 95 years for colour images.
Giclee can be confusing, as many may incorrectly assume that all digital printing is equal. Essentially Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is an invented name from the French word ‘le gicleur’ meaning ‘to squirt’. Originally coined in 1991 to distinguish between common digital prints and the highest quality form of art reproductions using wide-format inkjet printing technology. In 30 years, this technology has advanced enormously, giving an even wider distinction between Giclee reproductions and digital prints. However, we still use the word ‘print’ so that we are easily understood.
Fine Art Giclee Reproductions should be framed behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your reproduction and ensure your artwork still looks amazing for 3 – 4 generations.
