This piece of work has been one of my favorites. I think it relates to the times that we are living in now. I reread the scripture just about every time that I sat down to paint. The way in which this art fits is the fact that all of my artwork has a message behind it.
While I was creating it, I thought a lot about the things that are going on in the world today. While paining this particular piece, I reflected on how we must be equipped to live and fight the battles that are forced upon us. Each day, before going out into the world, we must put on clothing to cover our nakedness. In the same way, before going out into the world, God has instructed us to put on the armor that He has prepared for us.
I give credit to my pastor. Pastor Michael K. Anderson has been pouring the word of God into me for over 15 years. I also give credit to my wife, Jacqueline Coleman for her constructive critiques and her thought provoking questions.
This piece of art is an original. It is a 36 X 24 acrylic on canvas. I used a variety of colors to create the outcome. If interested in purchasing, please contact me on Facebook (Rodney L. Coleman, Sr.), Instagram (papirodtheartist), or call/text (954-839-4788) for further details.
I can create a family portrait and/or individual portraits. I can capture those special moments for you, too.
