Hello people, Today is the 8th 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.

This piece was my promotional piece that I used for the last two years for my art shows and other media. I think I chose this piece because of its limited colour palette; yellow, blue and brown. I just realized that until recently, because when I worship, I don’t think what colours I’m going to use beforehand, I just do it. Sometimes I do think ahead of time of what I’m going to use, other than the subject of painting and that it realistically renders the subject, that’s all. I really love the way it came out and that with a limited colour palette, it shows the subject even more.

Today and only 2/8/15, with a minimum bid of  $192.00, the highest bidder will receive a commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB. This portrait will be placed in the 2016 art show. Thank you again for your support, appreciation and time!!!!

Love you with the love of the Lord!
