The image of . . .

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”                                         Genesis 1:27

To an extent I think all artists desire their work to represent some aspect of themselves. The heavens, mountains, oceans, etc all declare the glory of God. When we look at them we see a new aspect of God. God made us in His image, just as we want our children to resemble us.

I find it very interesting that we also like to create things in our own image.

As a writer, I am daily faced with the truth that God made us to enjoy creating, just as he does. When I write, I try to draw from everything I know of God, his creation, and myself and try to create out of the best. My creation are at most poor representations of what He has already made.
