New artwork: Before the World Was VII. Exploring the idea of using semicircles to represent Heavenly Mother and Heavenly Father. (The other ways I’ve tried so far include interlocking circles, yin/yang shapes, whole circles, triangles, and circle-and-triangle figures.)

A few new pieces of art.

He Will Deliver Me, about David and Goliath:

A small red circle next to a large red circle.

Everlasting Covenant:

A large white circle above a large red circle.

Nevertheless II, another Gethsemane piece:

A red circle on a dark background.

By Day and by Night, about the pillars of cloud and fire. I’d tried to do this piece multiple times in the past but it never clicked for me until I brought the pillars together at the center.

A tall white rectangle and a tall golden rectangle at center, flanked by a light blue background at left and a dark blue background at right.

New artwork: Their Work and Glory V. I wanted to do a warmer, more subtle version of TW&G IV with (I believe) better composition. The colors ended up pairing with New and Everlasting III and Peace Be unto Thy Soul.

The Doors of Death, based on a conference talk instead of a scripture (which is something I haven’t done much of yet). I like to think of this one as me talking with my dad.

More new artwork: Though Your Sins Be as Scarlet II. I haven’t been happy with the original and wanted to rework it.

New artwork: Holiness to the Lord II. I wanted to make a new version of Between Heaven and Earth and this is what came out of it.

I Need Thee Every Hour II

I made this a couple weeks ago but haven’t posted about it here yet:

I Need Thee Every Hour II

When we were going through my dad’s things, we found a framed version of the original piece that he’d hung up in his office. That version was more representational than my more recent work, though, so I decided to do a more abstract, minimalist version in memoriam.
