In The Beginning

I made this painting for my friend and youth pastor Lief Erickson.

Last year I attended Simply Youth Conference with my church. Every night we heard great talks from different speakers, but one stuck out in my head more than the others. It was focused on a verse from 1st Samuel 10:22. My memory of the entire talk is extremely foggy now since it has been over a year since then. This painting was taken from the verse when God speaks and says "Behold, he has hidden himself among the baggage." The talk was referencing being afraid of your past and hiding yourself among what's happened to you. (I apologize for the bad lighting in the pictures, it looks a lot more green than the camera made it out to be).

imaginary skylines.

I went through a stage last spring (2010) of drawing imaginary skylines. I'd draw them on everything -napkins, folders, assignments; this was my final skyline purge. Acrylic and oil pastels on canvas, roughly 4ftx3

Untitled - Abstract

This was my first real attempt at an abstract painting. I worked on this painting in the spring of 2010 and it's since then been hanging in the basement of the Regent Apartments on display for Blackhawck Churches College-Aged Ministries (CAM)- http://www.facebook.com/blackhawkcam.org
