painting session

I spent an evening a couple weekends ago painting. I found some neat art related quotes that I wanted to try painting. I got the stencil idea from an article in an art magazine (featuring an artist who uses lots of type in his artwork). And I learned that cutting out custom stencils is painstaking and tedious. But at least you can use them more than once.

edit: The artist that got me thinking about stencils is Ward Schumaker, and he was featured on the website Illustration Friday.

Sketch from church a few weeks ago. Object lesson involving an electric contraption with light bulbs that would turn on and off and at varying brightness, depending which switches were flicked. Used as a metaphor for one's spiritual walk. Perhaps most of the time only one light is on, and barely flickering. Sometimes more lights are on. Spiritual walks have ups and downs, as does life.
