VIOLENCE JUDGED (Image Below)

Signed Original - 2012

Size & Materials

18 1/2" (H) x 24 1/2" (W) - Framed behind glass

Acrylic Paint, Newspaper, Poster Stock, Photo Paper & Card Stock on foamboard. This is a custom painted collage.

Style Used - Emotionalism

Symbolism – Bottom left; next to the word "Mercy" the praying hands are a symbol of faith in God. The cross around the neck of the running gangster for some might be a symbol of the suffering of Jesus on the Cross, but in this example it is not. It is rather simply a piece of jewelry worn by many as either adornment or a phony show of religion ...all the while having hearts far from God. The small fish toward the center-bottom is of course a recognized symbol of Christianity. There is hidden code in this painted collage.

Trial by Fire (Image Below)

Signed Original - 2016

Size & Materials

24" (H) x 36" (W) - Framed 

Acrylic & Oil Paint on treated canvas. 

Style Used - Emotionalism - This painting contains hidden code.

Symbolism – The “menorah” in the top right corner is a symbol for divine light and wisdom, and the circle and symbol in the top left is called ‘Chai or Hai’ (Chet & Yod) which stands for life or the gifts of life. The figure with downward stretched hands is not necessarily Jesus; however, many bible commentators will call this a ‘Christophany’ or Old Testament appearance of Christ. The text within Daniel 3 actually calls him a ‘son of the gods’ (see below), and His gold and purple sash indicates royalty. Within the sky there are several hidden images of eyes, a lamp, a face, and plants. All can represent many things in a spiritual sense. Lastly, the king (see below) in the bottom right holding the staff is a symbol of foolish and undeserved power. A powerful man that rushed to a judgement without getting the full story first.

In the center from left to right is the Prophet Elijah, Christ Jesus, and Moses, all three have elements of gold within their clothing and hair; symbolizing endurance, prosperity, royalty or diety.
