Hello people, Today is the 9thday 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 art of the day….
Night and Day III. (2013). Felt strips stitched on cloth. Thru His vessel JB.
All of the pieces in this segment and I mean all of them, I was up late almost every night before I went to work in the morning. I had needles, multiple threads and scissors to cut the felt into strips and stitch it to the old T shirt. This process took about 2 weeks to complete and I am so pleased that I was able to finish on March 30, 2013, my deadline was the 31st. By this time, I was finished with the whole Men in Authority series and could not wait to show the world.
About 6 weeks later, I was able to show my work at the women’s fellowship at my church and everyone did not realize that I made the work that I did in a small segment of time. I’m surprised myself, but I know the Lord gave me the strength to complete it. The women were inspired and already asked when it would turn up for sale. Two years later and here it is!
I want to thank all of the people that contributed the materials for this particular phase, I ran out of T-shirts and I’m grateful for the friends that I have in my life to help me reach this goal. Once you have your mind set on what you want to do, God has already made the way, you just got to do the stepping.
Today is the only day 2/9/15, with a minimum bid $216.00, you can purchase this piece at www.32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings . The highest bidder will receive a commissioned portrait, courtesy of Thru His vessel JB for the 2016 art show. Thank you again for your support, participation and time in making this auction a success!
In service of the King,
Thru His vessel JB
