I’m a contemporary realist, inspired by the classical realism of still life and portraiture. The craftsmanship of painting is very important to me. The paintings I create are a result of years spent honing my artistic skills, and studying techniques of past artists, as well as contemporary artists.
The spiritual Battle Found in Ephesians 6:10-20 describes how God wants us to be strong in Him because we are in a spiritual battle against the powerful forces of darkness. This spiritual battle is the war against spiritual forces. My painting embodies this because my subject, Julie, is unafraid to confront this battle. She gazes unwaveringly directly into the eyes of these dark forces, ready to abide by the word of God.
I, Amuri Morris, was the only person involved in the creation and painting of this piece. I started with a sketch on canvas paper and then I painted over it with oil paints to create the image.
