Last week I attended an encaustic workshop coordinated by the College Art Association and hosted at SMU, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. This little 4x6 inch piece is one I did during the workshop using the traditional encaustic method along with an image transfer technique.
A quick pencil sketch of a wonderful sculpture by Daniel Chester French entitled Benediction and completed in 1922. Mr. French is best known for the seated Abraham Lincoln found at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. This small-scale sculpture is a beautiful winged, hooded angel figure who reaches her arms out with palms down blessing those who appear before her person.
Feel The Spirit is a concept based on the idea that you can feel the spirit of God working at Crossroads UMC. This is the final design and is featured on the front of the shirt. The T-Shirt project is a fundraiser for Kenyan relief and our friends in Meru, Kenya.
