Today is the 12th 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…….
Light over dark II (2012). 14″ by 10″. Burnt etchings on wood panel. Thru His vessel JB
This piece is actually my first burnt etching piece, but the material used was not my initial thought. I thought of using beauty beads, pony beads that’s usually used for hair and jewelry, crush them up and glue them up to make an image on wood. That’s didn’t happen because all that hammering, made too much noise and my Landlord at the time, could not tolerate it ( I worked on it until the wee hours of the morning before I started work or church). Plus, I bought some beads on ebay and when it came, they were micro beads and I could not use them within the time frame I proposed, it would have taken forever to complete the project!
Fortunately, thanks to the Holy Spirit, gave me an idea when I went to one of my favourite stores, Michael’s. I wanted to work with wood being this is the second phase of the project but was unsure how to execute it. I passed by the wood panel section and Eureka! there was my answer: Woodburning. I was so excited and thanked Jesus for the answer. As a result, although I started late in this phase around early November 2012, I was able to complete this phase by December 31, 2012.
The highest bidder with a minimum bid of $48.00 at 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings will receive a free commissioned portrait by Thru His vessel JB. This portrait will be placed in the 2016 art show. Thank you so much for your support and for reading this blog.
For the love of God, my Lord Jesus the Christ
