Today is the 6th day of the last part of the auction at 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings . Yes, it has been quite a ride! I have all of you to thank for making the Men in Authority series and Worship painting series a success. This following series is one of my passionate, especially since I could relate at that time….being single. Now there is nothing wrong with being Single, other than what we think; freedom, and doing whatever we want without reporting it to anyone(unless you have children), sleep late, and for many learning to be our true selves. Well to tell you the truth, not many of us know our true selves, because God is not in the picture. We all have a purpose while living on this earth and it is important that we as believers seek God to fulfill our purpose. The overlaying theme is to basically trust God and not lean on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5. The name of this series appropriately entitled “For a Single Purpose” is what God did in using willing vessels to accomplish His will and purpose. All of these people at the time, were single people, they were not married yet at the time God called them or are either widows or prostitutes. No matter the circumstance, God used them because they believed His Word and as a result accomplished not only fulfilled their desires but ultimately gave them a purpose and within that purpose is to glorify God.
Like the Men in Authority series, the nature of this project is tripartite, meaning the same theme was completed in 3 different ways and mediums. There are 11 characters in all, most of them from the Old Testament and a few big names. However, in this auction, there are only 10 characters shown and not all of characters are shown in 3 different ways based on the voting results. As usual, I enjoyed making this series because the process made the characters alive and something we can relate to in this time of age.
Featured work of the day…
Anna II (2013). 15″ BY 20″. Watercolour on paper. Luke 3
This is my first piece in Phase 2 of this series, meaning I would be experimenting with a different medium during this phase. The figure presented here is Anna, a prophetess, who became a widower at a young age and since then is seen everyday in the temple giving praises to God. I know she practically lives in the temple and she knows that God has her back no matter what. Joy is radiating from her hands and arms to show the glory of God. She is known to be one of the prophets to proclaim Jesus as the Lord and Savior of Israel and then the world.
Today is the only day with a minimum bid of $144.00, the highest bidder can purchase this piece but also receive a free commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB. This portrait will be placed in the 2016 annual art show. Please feel free to tune in at 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings and comment in the space below. I appreciate it!
For the love of God and Art!
