An original artwork, a diptych: graphite drawing, acrylic on plaster and wood panel, each panel measuring 14″x14″ and 1″ deep, inspired from a beautiful and meaningful Bible passage: Isaiah 55:8-9 that reads:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

The same text is used on the second panel.

Inspired from Byzantine iconography, the icon of Blessed Mother with Jesus as a child is a mixed media artwork: water soluble graphite, acrylic and silver leaf on wood panel, measuring 18″x12″ and 1″ deep.
Just as in byzantine iconography (more a black and white version) the contrast between
the materials used and the treatment of the face next to the light reflecting
silver leaf, very much like earth and light, creates very a beautiful and meaningful contrast,
summing up our human condition.

 

Forgot to post it initially – the Fall Studio sale will end today!

Fulfilling their purpose, without doubt and any hesitation,  the featured elements – the crow and utility lines generate power and calm. I love finding peace in unexpected situations.
Graphite on wood panel and plaster, measures 28″x18″.

Below are the stages the artwork went through:
