Commissions

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.

The Unfolding

“I join you as a prayer partner. I move into my studio, sit quietly and begin to pray your prayer.”

After some contemplation about your intention, take some time to visit Stephen’s website Portfolio. Based upon what you see and experience, you may feel called to a particular style. When you feel ready, get in touch with Stephen. Together you will create the specifics.

After your conversation, Stephen will join you as a prayer partner. He will move into his studio, sit quietly and begin to pray your prayer. Stephen’s 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.
