Today is the 15th day of my Men in Authority series: Higher than him. This series came to me through a vision God has shown me and had all men in uniform praising God, lifting his hands as a sign of reverence to the Most High. This is to allude that these officers and military personnel are telling you that they are respondents of a higher Power and they are not the last authority. Unfortunately, in many current events in New York City and beyond, some of these authority figures think they are the last authority and that is not the case. I just want to honor those men who have been serving this country, locally, regionally and internationally through the blood of Christ in a respectful manner. Thank you.
This is also the first time I started using a structure that utilized 3 different mediums in three different ways that depicts the qualities of the Godhead (Jehovah the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit). In this series, I used acrylics on canvas, sort of a traditional feature for Jehovah, burnt etchings on wood, for Jesus as a carpenter and old T-shirts made into stitched works of art with felt strips for the Holy Spirit( He brings the old creature to new). Together, there are 33 pieces listed in this series. The whole series was completed from July 2012-March 2013. You can read the artist statement of this series under the Artist statement tab for more information.
Here is the featured work of the day….
Hands up I (2012). 34″ by 28″. Acrylics on canvas.
This piece is the largest painting in this series. Three men in blue, in this case appears black of different ethnicities giving the utmost respect to God. I enjoyed painting a painting of this size and is aware that I needed a lot more paint. However, the paint used courtesy of Pearl art store helped tremendously. It does matter where you get paint and how it is used.
The highest bidder with a minimum $360.00 bid will not only take this home with them, but receive a commissioned portrait, courtesy of Thru His vessel JB. This portrait will be placed in the 2016 annual art show by Thru His vessel JB.
Thank you for your support, time and love in making this auction a success!
For the love of God and Art
