Hello people, Today is the 6th 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….
Night and Day II . (2012). 14″ by 10″. Burnt etchings on wood.
I believe this was the 2nd piece I made durning the woodburning phase. The iron pen was hot and ready on this one. I was able to get a lot of detail and show some lighting without any usage of paint(that came later). It was just fun using a limited colour palette and the simplicity of drawing. I love to draw. It is my first love. Painting was executed later and with more detail (check out fawmadeportraits.com to see what I mean) Overall, working and doing art for God helped me to hone my skills, give Him the glory and more ideas for art.
I have not done woodburning since then, but I definitely want to do it again in the future with better quality wood or not. I also need another iron pen.
Today is the only day 2/6/15 that this is on 32auctions.com/menandsingleart . The highest bidder will receive a commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB to be placed in the 2016 art show. Thank you so much for your support!!!
In service of the King
