23 of 50 by Drew Brophy SYMBOLS OF GOD 9x12 50 Paintings Series Nov 17 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

This painting is #23 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.


SIZE:  9″x 12″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

Every morning, after dropping the kids off to school, I drive past this church. Today, the sun was rising behind it, illuminating it in the most beautiful way. This painting is what I saw.


I have always been fascinated by the structure of churches and the symbols which they use. The cross, bell tower or steeple, the alter. Churches have amazing acoustics, the organs sound other-worldly in them and 100 or more people singing is a powerful experience.


I believe this is the true meaning to the idea of a church; it is used to raise your vibration.

I am not religious, but I am fascinated with practices of all religions, where the ancient symbols came from and the original ideas which may have been lost or intentionally hidden through time.

*I’m making 20 signed, limited  and numbered edition prints of each of the paintings in this series – if interested in getting a print of today’s painting, please email or call 949-678-8133.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to Brent in Texas.  It’s one of many paintings of mine that he owns.
