I was not able to write my weekly Sunday Devotional With Mr. E this week.
(For those of you new here...almost every Sunday for the past 5 years I've written a post that connects art and faith. I normally post that Sunday morning.) My church asked me if I'd create a painting to co along with the new sermon series. I LOVE that they want to include visual art...I've always felt that was something churches should embrace....allowing people to use their gifts/talents/skills to contribute to what the church does. However, something had to give. I'm a husband, father of three, and a full time art teacher. I just don't have enough hours in the day. So...I decided I'd invest the time I usually put into writing my weekly devotional into my painting (and a bunch of other hours I squeaked out here and there!). It is 24 in x 48 in acrylic painting. I'm not exactly sure when/how it will be used, but excited to see the church embracing us arty types!! ha ha
