Today is the 1st day of auction at www.32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings of the 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.
Featured artwork of the day…
Handsome star studded praise II (2012). 14″ by 10″. Burnt etchings on wood.
Although this is the first piece listed, this is one of my last pieces I completed by my deadline, 12/31/12. It was a busy day because I completed 4 pieces that day, I may have gone to church or not, because that was a Sunday and there is no way I would have time to complete it on the 31st since I would be going to work, come home and then go to church for watch night! I give all the glory to God and I was so happy that I was able to finish in time when I started late.
This piece involves the process of wood burning; you have a hot iron pen to write or in my case draw things on. Depending on the type of wood, it can look like graphite, but it is not. Believe me, you touch the surface when you just finished and you can get burned! I almost did. Overall, it was a fun process and I thank the Holy Spirit for giving me the wisdom to come across such a medium. The story behind of my initial encounter with woodburning can be found on my first woodburning piece, which would be on the 12th day of this auction.
Again thank you for reading and participating in this event. The highest bidder with a minimum bid of $24.00 will receive a free commissioned portrait by Thru His vessel JB for display in the 2016 art show. Other than that, check out the action at www.32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings
