I love art! Love, love, love it. What moves me the most, is Christian art. Artists who have taken their blessed talents and used them to glorify God. Which to me seems to be the reason He has so graciously given each of us our own unique and perfect gifts.
Art of all forms moves my soul. There’s something drawings, paintings, writing, poems, movies, and music can touch in a way that nothing else does. You know it. That feeling you can’t quite put into words because it is so profound and so delicate.
I believe it’s a brief glimpse of heaven and all it’s glory and beauty. A mere, microscopic glimpse into the heavenly realm that our Lord has gone to prepare for us. I imagine the colors, fabrics, nature, and everything else in heaven to be things we have never seen or could ever imagine. It will be so magnificent that our human minds couldn’t take it all in.
Can’t you just imagine it? Think about it for a few minutes. Let your imagination run wild and rest in the pure and utter joy of it all. The peace, the beauty, the glory of God. It’s almost too much, isn’t it? Nothing makes my heart rate quicken like imagining life with Jesus. Whole and wonderful. Perfection as only the Father can paint.
Here are a few sites that bless me with their art work.

The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19 The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.[f] 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass. Revelation 21:18-21
