The first time!

This is the first time all of my original art has left the house at once! It is on display at the Southdown Plantation in Houma, Louisiana.

The art world is a place to go in steps for me. It will be interesting to see when and where the next step will be!  JeffDuke

The Flavor of Salt

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men". Matthew 5:13 

In this video you can see how this verse influenced me.  The song was written and performed specifcally for this piece by Carly McIlvaine.
