On Spencer’s “bread-and-butter” paintings, Stephen Cottrell notes,

because he believed that even the tiniest little thing could bear the imprint of God and therefore the majesty of the whole, each petal of each daisy is lovingly rendered (p8)

Do I see the imprint of God in every thing?  In every one? Do I pause and look?  How might life be different if I do?

Time to look for the imprint of God?

This year for Lent, I am reading Christ in the Wilderness by Bishop Stephen Cottrell, published by SPCK, reflecting on Stanley Spencer’s paintings of that title.
