For a Single Purpose: Joshua III(2013)

Author note: This is the last week of art story, ending on today the 2nd for a while. It should come back from hiatus with a new series. I got a lot of things planned behind the scenes offline, one of which is later this month; a live painting session. For tickets and other information, please click here.

Hello people!

I hope all is well with you. I have to say that for now, this art story will be the last featured art story in a while. I have been working very diligently behind the scenes and a lot of the things are coming to fruition at last! I smile because God is so good and as long as you put Him first, everything else falls into place. I know it seems cliche to say so, but I can say that for real. In today’s post, we will talk about Joshua III (2013), dealing with the walls of Jericho.

Joshua III (2013). 28″ BY 36″. Collage on plyboard. Thru His vessel JB. For a Single Purpose series.


This scene must have been difficult to imagine, how did you come up with this scene?

My imagination and 100% Holy Spirit led. There were so many things going on behind the wall of Jericho. They had to walk around the walls, six times in silence and the seventh time, yelled at the sound of the horn, making the walls crashing down. That must have been a sight to see and since that is the most outstanding, it had to be shown at the end. I also believe it was outstanding, that everyone beside Joshua was obedient and did not dare open their mouths previous before it was time.

This story alone is the subject of many Christian sermons. It is important to know when to shut your mouth. Just because it doesn’t make sense to you, does not mean it does not make sense. Just follow instructions and you will see the picture, But for Joshua and his crew, they already saw the walls crashing down before it did. That is faith.

How long did it take to make this piece?

Since this is a large piece and I used collage, or rather magazine strips to make an image, it took a good 20 hours to complete, and I was satisfied with the final result.

Okay people, that’s it for the while. I hope you have enjoyed thus far these art stories and now have an idea of the idea behind of the work of art that I do. I’m unsure of when I will resume these art stories, but this is not the finale. Stay tuned by checking the Art Scholars page for any updates or rather email Stay blessed in this life!

For the love of God and art!
