Today is the 2nd 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 work of the day…..
Light Source. (2012). 14″ by 10″. Burnt etchings on wood.
When doing this piece, I had a very limited colour palette, everything depended on how hard I pressed my iron pen against the wood. For some reason, I could not express light well with my iron pen (duh) and had to use white acrylic paint for the light. I had fun doing this piece, doing the shading and everything. This was close to the end, so I was running out of ideas of how to portray a particular theme. In hindsight, I would have added more shading, but I think I did my best with the time I gave myself. Just have to keep doing it.
Today is the only day this piece will be on 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings with a minimum bid of $48.00. The highest bidder will receive a free commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB and will be placed in the 2016 art show. Thank you so much for your participation and support!
For the love of my God, Jesus the Christ
