Meet Art From God’s Heart Artist Thomas S. Chapman
Art From God’s Heart is all about God’s Word through visions being shared through my original watercolor paintings to bring glory to the Lord. These landscape paintings, floral paintings, and inspirational art paintings are to encourage and build up the body of Christ. God gives gifts to His body, and He has imparted the gift of worship to me through the art of painting. I am truly blessed to be able to see and paint the visions I get from times in church when I am just worshiping or reading the word of God in the Bible. I often read the Bible, read a spirit-directed book, surf the internet, or just spend time alone with Jesus. This is probably the most important time, as Jesus loves to show us visions, dreams, and His word so we can bring it to the hurting, hungry and expecting soul.
There was a season of 25 years, where I didn’t paint for the Lord. You know I didn’t realize it then, as I was doing good things, working hard, doing the best I knew how. Yet something was missing and it wasn’t until a 90 year-young women Lois Raps asked me to help her to paint that I realized it. She was the one that God used to turn me around from thinking that I was over the hill and that painting wasn’t in my life anymore. Wrong, God does not take His gifts back, we just don’t use them, and they’re still there, just a little rusty. It was like a miracle that the ability and energy that I had once painted with was still there. My right hand now had a nervous twitch, but when I would pick-up a watercolor brush all that nervousness was gone. My hands are healed in Jesus Name as I press into the Lord and yes use my hands for Jesus the way I was gifted to use them.
I pray this short bio will encourage you to step out in faith and let God use you to be a blessing beyond what you could imagine.
