Riëtte Delport story is one of God’s amazing grace and His awesome power. Soon after her marriage, she started exploring her God gifted talent to paint and she established the name Rut Art, referring to Ruth from the Bible.

My inspiration for this art piece:
Mind, Body and Soul. When I read this and reflecting upon this, what does it mean to me personally. Transformation!!!
Our minds are being renewed by the Holy Spirit. Romans 12:2
Our Bodies becoming the temple of God and how we leave behind the works of the flesh 1 Corinthians 6:19.
Our souls being restored by God we do not follow the flesh anymore but after righteousness. Ezekiel 18:4
My inspiration for this design was inspired with my own transformation in my spiritual walk.
I was once lost but now I am found!!!
The background is a desert sand color symbolizes a time of suffering whilst the Lord is building your character for the furtherance of His kingdom.
The pomegranates bursting from the heart is symbolic that after Jesus has filled my heart so the beauty can shine from within. The pomegranates symbolize that God loves you irrespective of your failings. God has restored my Joy and so can yours. The color of the pomegranate indicates the intimacy with God.
Look closely at the burst pomegranate and see yourself as a seed in the kingdom of God, each one is a seed on its own and together they make the fruit and together we all make the body of Christ.
I really hope u would enjoy this piece as much as I did it was joyful to create knowing that my Shepherd is watching over me now that I have chosen to follow His voice.
