When shopping, I often find myself observing the birds that have become trapped in the shopping centre. I wonder if they’re happy here or if it is a prison.

Local Park Hidden From One’s Mind

December 2, 2008

20080601-flokot-jun1footyovalSunday 1 June 2008 – 3.47 pm

First day of winter. We’re taking a walk around a massive parkland to give the cameras a spin. This place is just near our house – it backs onto our street. For some reason, I forget it’s here. And I think we scared off the teen boys on their bikes.

Wild Donkeys

September 29, 2008

10.02 am – Thursday 29 May 2008

The world is full of amazing creatures. Just read the Bible – Job 39 – for a sense of their wonder. This was inspired by Job 39:5-8. I’m drawing from memory. There’s many species and subspecies of wild ass, onager, donkey, etc., each unique and with incredible endurance and swiftness of foot… or hoof.

Random extra information: on this passage of Scripture!

Job 39

5 “Who let the wild donkey go free? Who untied its ropes? 6 I gave it the wasteland as its home, the salt flats as its habitat. 7 It laughs at the commotion in the town; it does not hear a driver’s shout. 8 It ranges the hills for its pasture and searches for any green thing. (Today’s New International Version, from http://bible.crosswalk.com/.)

From ICR’s Online Study Bible reference to Strong’s Concordance:

6501
arp , peh’-reh: or pereh (Jeremiah 2:24) {peh’-reh}; from 06500 in the secondary sense of running wild; the onager:–wild (ass).

Job 39:5
Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

4th Day Concepts

August 27, 2008

Thursday 29 May 2008 – 9.53 pm

Thinking about art concepts. Sometimes I get so full of ideas that it’s better if I sketch them roughly – using note paper and ball point pen.

Reading Genesis 1 – one of the chapters I’ve read more than any other in the Bible. This sketch is from verses 14-19 – the 4th day. Inspired by, that is.

Images inspired by my over-active dreams. I keep meaning to draw them. Here’s one conceptual outline from a dream I had in recent months. Concept “girl riding draught horse past impossible mountains.”

Living Water

August 23, 2008

Wednesday 28 May 2008 – 10.02 pm

Contemplating the significance of water as a symbol of life in the Bible. There’s some rich truths bound to be discovered there

John 4:14…

…whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life… (NIV)

Hippy Towns

August 22, 2008

Saturday 24 May 2008 – 2.20 pm

At a cafe in a different town from usual. It’s in the mountains near our house. I love coming here, it’s a fascinating hippy and New Age town. Admittedly it would be hard being a Christian here, but it is a beautiful place nonetheless!
