Mike Haywood has been given permission to use his local church in Cornwall as a studio in which to paint a triptych entitled "Amazing Grace".
John Newton (1725 -1807) wrote the words to “Amazing Grace”, one of the most beloved hymns of all time. Newton was the captain of a slave ship for many years. In 1748, at the age of 23, he underwent a dramatic religious conversion while steering his vessel through a storm in the Atlantic. The words of Amazing Grace refer to that moment on the ship.
The central canvas is over 5ft wide and will depict Newton's ship in the violent storm. To the left, the canvas will show the depths of Newton's despair during the storm and to the right will depict his moment of redemption.
