Wet on Wet Painting

I love paint!  Loads of thick, rich, bright colorful paint.  In some ways I wish I could eat it since many times the colors and textures look good enough to eat!

Hello, I am sharing my story below from my website.  It is tailored to the unbeliever so it is discreet about my faith.  It does not cover my conversion to Christ, when I was born again.  I will share that another day.  It is a decent portrait as an artist.

God bless you!

No more Warriors of Distruction , In this age we no longer dress with glamor for war. We do not spend hours designing an outfit special for our defense. And we do not receive angel wings or halos for the behavior. Battles in ancient times were often blessed by an icon sitting on a hillside to protect and defend. I did this series in reverence for the past warriors and prayers we might learn something.

 How could they have looked so beautiful…
