This artwork is evidence of my style and preference to illustrate the many layers in life and art. My style of creating this piece was expressive in nature and I wanted to use lines and grit to showcase how light can shine through the darkness. The right half of the painting is dark, and if you look to the center of the piece you can see how there is a circular shape with diagonal lines peeping out to the opposite corner. This reminds me of the sun, and how no matter what it finds a way to shine its rays through the darkest of days.
Just like the six pieces included in the full armor of God, I wanted this artwork to portray sections. I used materials that illustrated metal and a metallic feel to illustrate the form of protection necessary like a solider in the battle for forging ahead in life after properly being protected by putting on the full armor of God. Faith is not enough, you must put on the armor of God in order to spread his message and win against the forces you inevitably battle in a spiritual sense when spreading the good word.
I, Amanda Lamoureux Smith, am the only one involved with creating this artwork.
