 Art Bio

The Valley of Achor by Jennifer Phillips

 

Valley of AchorI used 3D software called Terragen to create the background for this image. I used a photo I took at Jindabyne in NSW, Australia as a surface texture for the background. I added a tree growing on the rock face in Photoshop.

In June 2006, as I looked at the image I thought about the valley of weeping becoming a place of refreshment, but couldn't remember the name of the valley. As I was trying to remember, the Holy Spirit put the name "Achor" into my mind. It was not the name I had been trying to remember, so I searched and found the verse I wanted - Psalm 84:5-7. I named the art: Rain/reign in the pool of Baca (Weeping).

I didn't know what the word "achor" meant, so I looked it up and found out that my art was perfect for the image (Hosea 2:14, 15). The valley of Achor (trouble) becoming a "Door of Hope." The space between the cliffs was like a "door." So I widened it.

I added more rocks and a rusty watering can and decided that it should be called by the name the Holy Spirit had popped into my mind. The Valley of Achor.

Some time later a lady saw this art work and said the colour was just like what she had seen in one area of Israel.

Friday 6th June 2008, I turned the TV on and "The Door of Hope" message was being given by Karen Dunham. She was saying, "Come to Israel." It just sounded to me like God was inviting me as a few days before I had had an impression of Jesus standing in a doorway, holding out His arms saying "come."

In 2013 I used this art work as the basis for a scene in a Christian novel called "Seekers Finders Finders Keepers: find the ancient path," which is yet to be published.
