March, 2019 I will be an an art judge for the Biblical Verses Art Competition at the Mill Run Church in Hilliard, Ohio. Participating artists are given a verse from the bible and have just 7 days to create their interpretation of that verse. I will be looking for excellence in the handling of the medium, composition, technique and creativity. The church Paster will be looking for how well the artist interpreted the bible verse. All artworks will be on display at the churche’s art gallery.
This is a watercolor painting created for a fundraising effort for Honor Flight Columbus. The painting was used for a poster and
direct mail cards. The original painting was auctioned off at the
annual banquet with 100% of the funds going to Honor Flight.
