After The Storm
Oil on canvas
This is my church, St. Peter's By-the-Sea Episcopal Church in
Gulfport, Mississippi. It is on the beach and was destroyed
during Hurricane Katrina.
It was rebuilt from the ruins by the grace of God and by the
help of many people from all over the United States who came
in to help us after the storm. This painting captures
that moment of anticipation before the beginning of the Holy
Eucharist, when all of us experience the presence of Spirit
and the grandeur of God.
