It was April 6, 1975 when Derick Prince, an international bible teacher, made the statement that would come to provide the meaning behind Lisa Sutherland’s most recent painting, Eastern Glory Cloud.
Sutherland paints live in front of an audience once a month at Myrtle Grove Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, North Carolina. Her process for finding inspiration for her paintings begins with a prayer and a goal to create a piece that may touch and inspire her audience members.
The Inspiration for the Title Eastern Glory Cloud
Sutherland composed her most recent piece at Myrtle Grove without any prior knowledge of Derek Prince’s statement. After painting the piece live she was asked to lead a prayer. Her prayer included a statement very similar to Derek Prince’s statement from 1975.
In 1975 Prince stated, “I have found favor with you here in Eastern NC. I will personally visit you. There will be a revival greater than that of the great wales revival at the turn of the century. There will be kings and leaders who come from the north and south and east and west to study the Eastern North Carolina Phenomenon.”
After the service, a friend of Sutherland’s made the connection between the two statements and notified the artist of the similarities. Sutherland then named the painting the Eastern Glory Cloud.

The painting was then sent to Canvas Giclee Printing. Canvas Giclee Printing’s professional photographers use the Hasselbed HD4-50 megapixel system to produce a high resolution digital file. The photographer for Sutherland’s painting used special lighting in order to achieve visibility of the painting’s pallet knife details. The canvas print of the painting will be put on display in the Life Community Christian bookstore in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Lisa Sutherland has been painting prophetically for six years. Sutherland painted full time for conferences and worship events at Morningstar Fellowship Church in Charlotte, North Carolina and then moved to Phoenix, Arizona to paint at Patricia King’s Extreme Prophetic Ministries. Sutherland moved to Wilmington in 2011 and currently paints at the Wilmington Prayer Furnace and at the Myrtle Grove Presbyterian Church. She plans to open up a creative release studio in which she hopes to help release artists into a new realm of worship.
Sutherland currently holds painting classes privately and does outreach in the churches. You can contact Lisa Sutherland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
