Religion has been a subject for art and artists throughout the ages. For me, I have used religious icons (especially the Virgin of Guadalupe) in several art pieces, especially those with a strong political message or Latino influence. Recently, I was inspired by this post at Karen's Random Reflections blog to make time to create one art journal page a week during Lent (the 40 days between Fat Tuesday and Easter) that reflected upon my current feelings about my religion. Here's my page from this week. It's about insights as to how my Catholicism can co-exist with my more liberal tendencies and views. What about you? Do you incorporate religion or faith into your art?
