For Aunt Kay
Yup. On their way. I finally finished the one inspired by Grandpa's love of yellow. And of course I had to make a little something in red for you, Kay. Enjoy. Top: "Red + Flowers + A Little Bit of Every Color," 4 inches square. Bottom: "Sunshine Over Riverbed," 14 inches square.
For anyone counting, these were #23 and #24.
Five New Minis
#16 through 19 above are 4 inches square. #20, below, is a whopping 6 inches square. By next Friday, they will be for sale online. Deets on the way.
"Mulder, are you producing?" I hear this question in my mind frequently, posed by art professor William Wolfram every time I saw him after college. Great work doesn't happen in isolation; it flows or emerges from working consistently. I hear "Wolf's" question today as I confess, um, take stock of progress on the whole "Converging on Fifty" pledge I made about 20 days ago.
Five commitments for 50 days was admittedly ambitious. #1: Study appearances of Jesus post-resurrection plus study the book of Acts >>setting aside time is a challenge. Not sure if/how thinking on the texts will show up in artistic expression but Pentecost will be all the more meaningful. #2: Pray for 5 additional people daily >> acing that one. #3 Complete 50 works of art >> Producing! 15 works in 20 days. #4: walk 5 miles 5x a week >> uh...counting steps I've topped out at 4.5 miles a few times a week. And finally, #5: Post 50x on this blog>> as my nephew is fond of saying...not even close. I can decide that it"s okay to fall short or publish a flurry of posts to catch up. Apologies in advance to subscribers if I do the latter. Okay, sorry, Mom.
Art works #6 - 11, minis all.
Art works #12, "Be glad and Rejoice" and #13 "The Joy of the Lord is My Strength". #12 is the biggest mosaic with "palette trash" to date.
And lastly, but perhaps most importantly, works #14 and #15. They are the direct result of faithful producing. Breakthroughs emerge from consistent work. These two represent a big jump from working not just for the pleasure of creating but to the power of expressing other aspects of my life. Deets on Gallery page.
