Today is the 19th day of my Men in Authority series: Higher than him. www.32auctions.com/jbwrshppaintings .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.
Here is the featured work of the day….
Greater than I. (1) (2012). Acrylic on canvas. 18″ by 10″.
This is my very first painting of the Men in Authority series. I started around early July (when I received another vision from God about this work) and finished about mid late July 2012, before I headed to California for a vacation break. It took a while for me to finish, about two weeks time, since it has been a while I have painted solely in acrylics and it’s figurative. I recall going to the library a lot and borrowing books of seeing police in uniform to make sure it looks close to the real deal. The worship painting series 2009-2011, had some figurative pieces, but a lot of it was of another material, collage.
