Artist Statement

This is a piece that I have painted on and off for a year. I finished it January 1, 2020. I was inspired to create this image from a song by @laurendaigle “Rescue”. I had my friend model for me to get my poses. In the mist of your troubles and when your obstacles come to take you out, God said, I have not forgotten you, I know your life plans, and when weapons form against you, I will make sure they will not gain or take your life. I will bring you out, and I will rescue you. Many people ask me where I get my inspiration for my art. I tell them it my be from music, conversations about life, teaching from the Bible and life and the political world. This image has fabric, collage paper, ink, acrylic on Gallery wrapped canvas.
