Last summer the community outreach coordinator at our church had the idea to build and plant a community garden right on church property. It was a lovely spot, which I couldn’t resist painting.
In the fall, I entered my painting in an art and poetry contest sponsored by the Christian Courier magazine. The contest, called “Map and Mend,” was a challenge to depict through art or blackout poetry how the pandemic had been an agent of mapping the way forward, even as we were challenged to mend aspects of our lives that were torn during the Covid-19 pandemic.
My entry, along with my explanation of how it fit the theme, is below.
Though my entry was not a top three winner, to my surprise it did earn an Honorable Mention.
