Hello people, Today is the 21st 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….

Greater than I 2(2012)  watermark

Greater than I (II) (2012). 13″ BY 22″. Burnt etchings on wood.

It was not my attention to use this side of the wood panel to do my wood burning, but I like the texture. This is the only piece has this rice grain like texture and actually looks like I burnt the wood. :). All of the others, have been burnt too, only with a brown paper bag effect. Either way, both look good, but I preferred the other method which is why it was continued. This was also one of the first pieces completed in Phase 2. In hindsight, I wanted the hand to be bigger, but I started burning before I realized it. Either I wanted to give God the glory the best in this medium. Please feel free to comment below.

Today is the only day that this piece is on 32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings at a minimum bid of $504.00. The highest bidder will receive a commissioned portrait courtesy of Thru His vessel JB to be placed in the 2016 art show. Thank you for your continuing support !

For the Love of God and Art!
