Happy New Year! Since it is the new year, I can now safely share some of my holiday commissions with you. This abstract was commissioned as a gift for a choral director. Simply titled "Anthem" I tried to convey all of the colors and textures one might find in a good choral presentation.
This year’s Advent painting depicts the beginning of a new day. The
scriptures for this season are full of hope for a new day of justice and salvation.
However, this is no soft glow over a dew-filled morning, but rather a saving
light breaking through the cold darkness of a world desperately in need of
More than an illustration, this painting is a prayer for the
suffering, the homeless and the desperate. It is a reminder that we are not
consigned to live in darkness. A new day has indeed come. It keeps dawning over
and over. When we find ourselves
in a place where righteousness and justice seem lost in the dark, we have hope.
The break of new day will come again.
