Hello people, Today is the 17th 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 art of the day….
Spirit led hand III (2013). 24.5″ by 32″
This piece was rendered from Spirit led hand I, which unfortunately is not featured in this auction. However, I got the title based on scripture in either of the sypnotic gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River and the Spirit of God descended as a dove from the Heavens and God stated that Jesus is His Son and that He is well pleased. The Spirit of God as believers is supposed to led us as we live in this crazy world today. I Thank God for the Holy Spirit! I focused on white and various light colours, yellow and orange that this soldier is definitely led by the Spirit.
Today and only this piece is featured on 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings with a minimum bid of $408.00 . The highest bidder will receive a commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB, which would be placed in the 2016 annual art show. Please feel free to comment about this piece below. It is very much appreciated!!
For the Love of God and Art!
