These pieces feel like mountains to climb.
A soul-stirring journey.
Each piece carries its own weight, but they are intended as one. And the color is based off one of my most personal abstracts, "Denim," reaching back into my childhood, into clay-stained jeans and dirty knees.
Fitting, as these are about prayer.
Fitting, as I have to reach and kneel just to apply the paint.
Fitting, as that is the life of prayer, reaching and kneeling, and mostly for me: waiting.
There is more to come: We are just laying the foundation on these.
