Commissioning A Painted Prayer

Commissioning a Painted Prayer begins by having a conversation with yourself. Who or what are you praying for? Quiet yourself. Listen to the still small voice of Spirit. Take some time to visit my on-line gallery of Painted Prayers. Based upon what you see and experience, you may feel called to a particular style. When you feel ready, get in touch with me. Together we will create the specifics. I can be reached at:
215-872-4447 or steph@paintingmonk.com

After we have had our conversation, I join you as a prayer partner. I move into my studio, sit quietly and begin to pray your prayer. My job is to get out of the way and become a conduit for the image or images that emerge from the prayer. When your Painted Prayer is complete you will receive something more than an icon or symbol of your faith. You will receive a physical manifestation of your prayer.

The best days to reach me via phone are Monday and Tuesday at 215-872-4447. If I do not answer the phone please leave a message.
