Anyone Out There Grieving

Wise Men 2


Thought you’d like a little info on three photos used in my blog tonight. My BFF and fellow artist Barbara McBurney and I threw sheets on her driveway a number of years ago to paint and craft these seven foot hanging murals for Pointview Baptist Church, her church in Combine, Texas. The figures are sculpted fabric, the backgrounds painted.

Wise Men 3Remember we laid the sheets on the driveway and scrumbled  a wash of color with sponges, with only the thought of covering the background. The day we hung these in the baptistry of the church, Barbara and I sat in the church and cried. Notice the background behind the kings and tell me know what you see. Only God could have done this. Confirming a baby, born to die, and become Savior! King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Hallelujah praise the Lamb!
