These are thoughts and inspirations according to scripture, some with backgrounds, that I've been learning after time to implement actual scene and elements for. For instance: David and Goliath. What did the valley look like? What type of clothes did he wear to run?
Deu 18:9-14; Lev 19:26,31; 1 Cor 6:19-20
My first artwork was done in 2005 and I hand-painted it (Birth) before my girlfriend who soon became my wife. This started as a HTML site in 2005, then grew to international visibility by Zazzle and Flickr. (100,000+ visitors on Flickr alone.) Many of these are still on Google (Type: Realistic Imaginations. and Images)
Three fold scriptures on this: Purity of the heart and purity of the Body. After many years of being broken by what my body could give into. The more I kept hearing God by the desire to do artwork and learn his Word. All I wanted was more God. I pray the websites prove it. (Informal description of this piece. 06.14.2023)
True testimony. God allowed me not to have one evil thought against my beautiful Mother. At any time. She led me to Christ and was a beautiful Kingdom representative...being the firstborn I saw how God took us from point A to B in His timing. In my 40s now, I look back at how my religion was broken in half, many of times, by what I thought it should be and what God considered pleasing. I could study A-Z everything but if I disregarded the truth and wallked as if God didnt appoint her first. I would remain in a lie. I thought about the revelation, your "days will go well with you if you Honor your parents." I took it "as is." Many of the artworks you will find...supporting Breast cancer, flowers, and some of the women topics were for my family. What God was saying to me...as I looked to find answers. She had a chance to see all my work....IDSA Merit Award, Fossil/DKNY Watches, Ironman work, even to Christian work. During my IDSA Merit Award speech and Senior Thesis presentation in Milwaukee (I believe.) My mother in the whole room of designers and schools raised her hands like a cheerleader while I was on stage at the end. I designed a laptop that incorprated OLED before they became popular in Apple and the nation. God gave it to me. I have never and I will had a more honorable choice by God to respect in my mom. Which was my absolute blessing....my mother bought me my first box of crayons during christmas and I've come thus far from that support. (Informal description of this piece. 06.14.2023)
This is a normal thought about the armor of God. My first take on it. I did not have the expertise in 3D development to make actual Roman Armor. The tower shield, greaves, the helmet, the sword, or shoes that leced up above the shin. If you notice Eph 6:12. It says, "(we) do not fight flesh and blood." In the New estament....and so I was learning how (we) the entire Body of Christ and not one man like Elijah the prophet are not fighting like David of the Old Testament. Christ stood against all things in his love and piety against sin. The application of old school armor is great for men, in a figurative sense, that we are all warriors. However, not to fight against men with strife...but to overcome all evil in love. Im willing to die, crucify, an element in my life that leads another to sin.

When I developed this one. It was a later version than the Armor of God with Gold and Silver armor on. The revelation stands as Armor that comes from light. The Holy resurrection power through Christ to overcome sin. (Gal 5:19-23) There is no where through scripture are we to engage with celesitial beings as if it were a gane. What we do find is that we have to mortify ourselves from deeds of the flesh that allow sin to have doming over us...to yield to something contrary to God.

This was targeted at the younger audience. Notice I tried the crayon approach. What was in the lines and then it got out of control as it boiled to the top. Self-control in the essence is a more powerful tool than anything in life. To behave wisely means you have wisdom that supercedes an event before it happens. So, I appreciate the place of Christ that he gives us the power at any age to walk in the light and witness that others may be drawen to it in love. (Informal description of this piece. 06.14.2023)
I hope this doesn't disturb anyone but it is direct. How can a crown of thorns be a symbol of the Bread of Life? When he was baptized by John he sprinkled water from the Jordan river upon his head. he Holy-Spirit descended from Heaven and laid upon his sholders. The end of his ministry for all mankind was thorns that may have been pressed in and blood dripping from it (not meaning to be gory but relaistically thinking.) To have life means I have to give up or cause to be nullified completely what is alive for Death to reign. I notice my mouth has words that are evil for someone I am supposed to love. At the end, of life, I pray this tongue has love for the man who destined himself to be my enemy when we could not see thre truth yet. The last words of Christ was not. "My mother, brother, and sister are those hat follow the Will of God."" His last final words were "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." His mouth became humbled before God more than any man in life. When I saw that Christ would say such for someone who tok a spear and put it in his side pervertedly. Gave him vinegar. Watched him die. I was crushed and found something in myself that was evil. (Informal description of this piece. 06.14.2023)
The purest light that will ever be. I found out years later that one angel could illuminate the entire Earth. (Rev 18:1) So this picture will be redone. There was no form to the Earth and all the continents were connected. (Gen 10:25) So, this was Day 1 of a 7 pieces series God gave me....I did not finish years ago. I dont remember what happened, but I will finish this series off lord willing. As far as layouts and typography this is the best Ive ever done. Crisp, clean, solid colors that are easy on the eyes and draws everything toward the subject. (Informal description of this piece. 06.14.2023)
This was made in Terragen? I believe, though, I cannot remember. Yes, it was, now that I caught it.... by the water I can tell. I wanted to develop pieces that people would love to hang on their walls. So I chose landscapes with very eye gazing light renderings that inspired people to be drawn by the scene but see the correlation of the scripture. The whole hope is to learn God and have an interseting way of learning about it. So, the contemporary frames (Broadly added like an Ansel Adams piece.) PEACE is in a type setting again that is strong and bold. I placed it in such a way without a backdrop to pop the words out. Typography to keep interest in the entire picture when you step back a few steps. (Informal description of this piece. 06.14.2023)
Life in Christ. From GoMedia, I was able to receive free angel wings part of their sample media download. Then, I created a brush in Photoshop and rotated it to get the design behind it. This background is 1 of 2. The first was a solid gray and this one was more favorable toward life (though done in a warm color.) I dont remember what I was going through but I was learning about Romans 6. Through the cross I will have life...and be as Angels are (Rev 19:10) Angels are not celestial spirits that are performing many of the over the edge fantasy things we believe. They simply Worship God, The Son, they are totally faithful, pure and they all point to Jesus. Notice after the resurrection all they say, "Where Christ is. What we should do to get to Him.

Courage. Took a Chrome look and colored it in two different pieces (Courage and Beautiful.) One for men and the other for ladies (Blue and Pink.) Three sets of encouragement scriptures.
Someone's birthday was coming up. So i wanted to make a card to send to them. This is just as much as (Phil 1:3.) I thank God for every remembrance of you." Which I use many times in cards and text messages to friends and family. So, I took one Photoshop brush and changed the hue color and made three different versions of this one.
