   On Earth as it is in Heaven      ( Northumbrias jewel in the crown Holy Island now has heavenly status ,Anyone seeing this picture especially those living on Holy Island will always now forever see the plough representing  Holy Island and its causeway in the heavens )  as the shape of the plough is virtually the same shape as the causeway & Holy Island

  John the artist had just finished the painting of Holy Island with the Plough constellation above Holy Island and showed it to his brother Jimmy, Jim said " Wow  john look at the stars "John looked and said " yes i put the Plough in " Jimmy said "No its not that " its the shape of the Plough it is virtually the same shape as Holy Island and the causeway " John hadnt realised this coincidence before,     Then the process of waiting for a suitable title for the painting, inspiration came after 3 weeks waiting, when John was at Revd Rachel Poolmans St Cuthberts Centre on the island and praying the Lords prayer when the title came  to him "On Earth as it is in Heaven "

     John thought it was pretty amazing to find his inspiration from the Lords Prayer , and on Johns return from church was affixing the title to the painting in the gallery when 2 beautiful ladies with huge smiles appeared in the doorway,they didnt really look around and picked up 2 prints each and stood staring at john,then one said "Hi John we are messengers and have been asked to deliver a message to you from the cosmos, and the message is simply " thank you, and thank you for seeing " no more was said they paid for the prints and went on their way,      John has his own thoughts on what happened that morning .     The painting is now sold

      The painting was inspired by a  photograph taken by  photographer,  www.timBerrall.com

Hudson who owned the castle requested a meeting with Lutyens in London to persuade him to develop it into a home ,    Lutyens then wrote a letter to his wife explaining that he was asked to develop a home 3 miles out to sea, and finishing with the words Its Too funny.    Therefore this oil painting is dedicated to both men .
