Today is the 7th 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…
David II (2013). 15″ BY 20″. Watercolour on paper.
David, I love me some David. As you may know, David was a warrior and bold he was! He was also an artist, both in performance and a wonderful lyricist, he wrote most of Psalms! Either way, this cat knew he had it going on because Yahweh was in his home court. He was typically seen as a weak link, I mean many thought he was a weakling due to him taking care of sheep, but the things he has done to taken care of his sheep is tremendous. He killed a lion and bear, if you want me to be clear. Either way, Goliath, the Phillistine giant taunted all of Israel and challenged the warriors. Everyone other than David scattered like mice from a giant cat, because David knew The Almighty One was with Him.
We as believers got to be like David, so passionate about the Lord and believe that His Word is true. I enjoyed doing this piece especially showing how calm David is before the storm (Goliath). No worries.
Today is the only day to purchase this piece with a minimum bid of $168.00 at 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings .
