Star" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. This is the first
picture in the book. Rather than illustrate the
miracle of the birth of Christ with a typical manger
scene, I chose to use the star.
The story of the star which is said to have led the wise men from the East to the Christ child is recorded in just twelve verses in the gospel of Matthew.
The star objectifies the idea that the coming of Christ truly was a cosmic event. The star is an emblem heralding the arrival of a new understanding.

18. This is the sixth picture in the book. The
verses which are called the Beatitudes are found
in the fifth chapter of the gospel of Matthew, the
first part of the Sermon on the Mount.

The boy did not hold back giving his small amount. The lesson: no amount is too little.

In the painting the image of the Christ is composed of a large crowd of people. This represents our oneness. May we all celebrate our Communion, the embracing of our oneness!

|"Heroes of the
Faith" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. This is the
twenty-first picture in the book.
This painting is my interpretation of the eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews.
The painting inspired by these verses shows a torch raised high. The word, FAITH, is stamped into the torch itself. Appearing within the flames of the fire is the word, LIFE.
