Part of the Pop Up Theology series, this piece is not based on any particular religious writing. Instead I created it to encourage the viewer to think of her own view of religion and spirituality.
In the painting, if you look closely, you will find the words:be good, do good, because…
Every religion has some sort of message about why you should do and be good and sometimes it is nice to remind yourself of the big picture and why you strive to be good and do good.
For example, a main message in Christianity is that you “be good” and do good not because it is a religious law or because is gets you to heaven but you do good and be good because you are thankful for the gift of forgiveness and all that God has given you.
