So I actually have some new artwork to show you guys! I have been really really busy the last couple weeks and this is def. a big part of it. Kev and me go to a non-denominational church in Troy called Terra Nova (Kev designed the site!). We really love it there. They have a huge focus on the community around the church as well as the arts. The church owns a gallery that they open to local artists and participate in troy night out and open studio nights. Kev and me had an exhibit there together last June.
Anyways, they asked me if I would want to create a series of paintings for the advent christmas season. Each sunday starting with the last week in November was a special sermon gearing up to Christmas eve. Focusing one week each on Love, Hope, Peace, Joy and then christmas eve itself. Even if you don’t share the same faith I think we can all agree that we all want love, hope, joy and peace in our lives. I was really happy to help out and create these paintings. Each one was used in the service as Ed (our pastor) gave the sermon.
Here is a picture of it up on the screen as the band played. We meet at Revolution Hall an old music hall in Troy. Its pretty cool. (Picture from one of our pastors)
Here is my artwork…
So I guess with this also comes my apologizes for being way behind on emailing back people and coming to visit everyones blogs. I have not forgotten I just have not had time as you can sort of see. I am counting down the days until we leave for FL and I can wake up each morning take my laptop outside and sit on the lani and reply back and leave comments to everyone. I love doing that stuff!!
So if you leave comments- leave a URL if you have one and I most def. will be visiting very very soon as well as email back a lot of people!!
