Monet Speaks to Me

Here’s another installment of art that speaks to me: Impressionism by Claude Monet.
I sometimes wonder if Monet saw God in the shadows between his brush strokes?
A friend used to sit and stare at Monet’s paintings and pray. She said Impressionism nourished her soul.

The ability to create through artistic skills and the appreciation of what’s been created – both can be spiritual practices in search of the Sacred in our lives.

Do you have art that helps you pray?
