“I am the vine; you are the branches.
If You remain in me and I in you,
you will Bear much fruit”
– John 15, Verse 5
When I accepted the fun challenge of this competition, I didn’t have any ideas in particular to help kick-start my imagination.
So, I decided to first look closely at the Bible quote itself and the imagery it made me think of. I took the first lines; “I am the vine; you are the branches” and thought of a tree, interwoven with grape vines. This for me symbolised the relationship we have with God. I later added the wings, to further my point as they are associated with such themes and give the drawing another layer of depth. I have used warm colours for the fruit, mentioned in “If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” To highlight all the good that comes from being close to God.
These elements came together in my mind to form this symbolic drawing done with markers, fine-liners and coloured pencils.Lauren, 11SW
