Hello people, Today is the 7th 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…
Nothing but up I. (2012). 10″ by 8″. Acrylic on canvas. Thru His vessel JB.
Doing this piece, I wanted to experiment different angles, and this angle was used as I took pictures of myself, looked at magazines and observed people to get what you see here. Overall, I was worshipping and enjoyed it. The colours depict the vibrancy and how deep this officer was in worship. It’s a small piece, but there’s a lot of Power in it and I want you as the viewer to see that. God is in all of the work that I do, and I see that with this piece in hindsight. God told me to continue to experiment and have fun, not just paint. There’s is a piece that I definitely shown that and give God all of the glory for it, unfortunately for your eyes, it is not for sale.
Today and only 2/7/15, this piece is on sale, minimum bid of $168.00 on 32auctions.com/menandsingleart . The highest bidder will receive a commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB and will be placed in the 2016 annual art show. Thank you so much for your support, time and participation!!
Seeking Him first!!
