"Remembrance Strings"

Submitted statement:
Much like a clipping of a loved one's hair in a locket, the violin's strings have been memorialized behind glass. The round shape of the coiled strings is replicated in the old oil tin and in the wreath that is used to symbolize Jesus Christ’s crown of thorns. The mannequins, common symbols of the visual arts, serve here as partakers of music who are giving applause to performance art. The piece was partially inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach, who signed his works "SDG" for Soli Deo Gloria, meaning “to the only God be glory.”

This isn't the first painting of 2008, but it is the first painting sealed and photographed. You can definitely see the plant kingdom represented....if you look throughout the painting, you will see the animal kingdom represented...I found a fish and a couple of birds...can you see a crane flying away above the red and to the left?

Violin Project Begins

The violin art project for the SC Philharmonic Show is due on February 1. This year I am doing an assemblage art piece. The first decision I have made is to use an old oil tin as the base. I will try to post pictures as I work on this so you can see the creative process.

It's 2008! Happy New Year!

The Lord blessed me with an invitation to spend New Year's Eve with three families from church. We had a great meal and a wonderful time with five great children. They especially enjoyed the sparklers (AKA "sparklies"). The evening was hosted by the Beckwiths. I hope everyone had the fellowship that I had as 2007 ended and 2008 began. Let us all seek to glorify God this year!
