New Art For Missions - "Galatians" Canvas...and More

I have only a few weeks left to contribute to the June mission trip our youth group is taking - so please buy quickly, and visit my shop, if you are considering any of my paintings!

Brand new -

 This one is entitled "Galatians".  It is a 12x12 canvas, done in all gauche, and graphic style renderings done in General's Sketch and Wash, also inks.  The background is the usual antique book pages, but this time they are very visible.  Love this one!  See the bird standing outside her cage?  The text says, "For you are called to freedom!"

Next is a small 5x5 canvas.  I wish you could see how these come mounted!  I will take another picture of this one mounted, soon:

I've named this one "New Creation".  It comes mounted uniquely and beautifully on a cast iron, antiqued "door knob" type of feature.  Can't wait for you to see!  But for now, you can click on the picture, for an enlarged view of this canvas, done in ink and acrylics and watercolor pencil, and hand lettered with a Pitt pen.  Perfect for any woman you may know who has recently chosen to pursue a relationship with Christ.

Last, another 5x5 canvas, and it also comes mounted on antique hardware, but I don't yet have a picture of it actually mounted:

  All original photography...the cup is Depression era lustreware in peach.  The quote says, "He was my cream, and I was his coffee - And when you poured us together it was something."

Holla.  I bear witness to this quote, so much so, I had to put my interpretation of it on canvas.  My Preacher and I are like that...a sweet, hot mess, and when you put us together, we are so much more than the sum of our individual selves.

If you search carefully, you will find on each of my pieces of art a tiny, inked key. This is something I began to do about a month ago. On some pieces there is only one key hidden in the painting.  On others, it might be more, and on some pieces, the key isn't so hidden.  When I sign each piece, I put a number, indicating how many keys are tucked away in the painting, then my initials, then the year I painted the piece.

Why a key?

Because of the Gospel.  The Finished Work of Christ is the key to understanding all of Scripture, Old Testament and New.  The law and the prophets pointed to Jesus.  In the last days, God has spoken to us by His Son.

Once you choose to view all of life and Scripture through the lens of grace ("grace came"), through the lens of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, the veil is lifted, and you begin to walk free.
