Trinity

Several years ago my daughter brought back from one of her many world travels, a small crucifixion sculpture. It’s very nice. You can take the suffering Jesus off the cross. I like that because it reminds us that the crucifixion was not the end. I hadn’t really noticed until I really looked at it that […]

Sleepers Awake!

This started out as an illustration for a concert. Our church choir performed Bach’s Cantata 140 and a few other selections at the Dallas Museum of Biblical Arts. I decided to make it my annual Christmas card (even though it’s really about Advent). The inspiration comes from Matthew 25. Click on image to enlarge. I […]

For the brochure I placed the Luther Rose on a wooden cross. Click on image to enlarge. […]

Advent Journey

I rarely repeat any art that I do. This is an exception. Last year about this time I did an Advent illustration for my church. Just to be different I did it in a mosaic/stained glass technique. I immediately decided I would do a different, more realistic version. I used it for my 2016 Christmas […]

I was asked to come up with art for  a religious concert. The event, titled, “A Journey to the Cross with Jesus,” was a chronology of Lent and Holy Week with musical selections in six sections. 1. Ash Wednesday, 2. Following Jesus, 3. Triumphal Entry (Palm Sunday), 4. Gethsemane, 5. The Cross, and  6. The […]
