Stands Forever

Stands Forever.  Acrylic, encaustic and gold leaf on wood.  8 x 8 inches. (2017).  $300.

All flesh is grass,

And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades,

Because the breath of the LORD blows upon it;

Surely people are grass.

The grass withers, the flower fades,

But the word of our God stands forever.

Isaiah 40: 6b-8 (NKJV)


Reminiscent of the medieval gold-leafed icon, this piece juxtaposes the golden eternality of God’s Word with the ephemeral and fleeting aspects of the world.

Encaustic is an ancient art medium using beeswax, resin and pigment applied to wood at 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
