Hello people, Today is the 24th 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.

Yes, this is second to the last day of the Men in Authority series. I am so excited that it has came this far! I’m so enthralled by all of the comments received  of how much each piece has blessed you.  This piece was the last piece completed before my deadline of 3.31.13 . Yes, you can say that I was burning the midnight oil, morning oil and afternoon oil while going to work full time, a part of ministry at my church and barely had any time to hang out. Wait, I didn’t hang out, right after church, I went straight home to work on art.  It also helps that I do not have a television. For me as an artist, that is a major distraction. If I get bored or restless, I just dance and listen to the radio, or just go outside and walk around. Just because I worked on my art, does not mean I am a hermit. When I need to go out, I do! It’s so easy to do work for the Lord, when you do not beat  yourself up on it. I know God can trust me when things need to get done!!! I take the word of God seriously, especially after I read about Jephthah’s vow (look in Judges 11), which is a part of my next series For A Single Purpose following this auction.

As usual, the highest bidder with a minimum bid of $576.00  AT 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings will receive a commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB. This portrait will be placed in the 2016 annual art show. Again beautiful people, thank you for your time and commenting on this piece. I’m so thankful to see this day. In the name of Jesus, my personal Saviour and Lord.
