Artist Statement

The process used to make this piece was digital painting using MediBang on an iPad with an iPad pencil. I have originally started my art pieces on paper and painted them, and now I have expanded into digital art and painting as well after creating the paper drafts.

How it fits into contest

This work I’ve presented is a picture of a Blood moon which is discussed in Joel 2:30-32 which the Lord said will be a sign of his return in the last days (Joel 2:30-32“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as the LORD hath said, and among the remnant those whom the LORD doth call.”). This verse also relates to Ephesians 6:13 (“Wherefore take up the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;”). So we have to make sure our garments are white and we are girded with the knowledge of our Lord when that evil day is upon us.
