"Knowledge - The Beginning of Great Things"

I decided on a title for the shelf sitters... "Knowledge - The Beginning of Great Things".  I have this one in the church exhibit and they request an artist interpretation of each work submitted.  I really enjoy this part of the process because it really makes me think about why I'm painting something.  I thought I'd share it with you... "when I was a child , I quickly realized that reading opened up a new world of places I'd never been,  people who led interesting lives and knowledge of those who accomplished great things.  These new adventures set into place the beginning of my lifetime goals."

I finally got a better photo of the painting and have posted it below.

I'll be starting another large work this next week and will work on it along side the dailies I've been doing.

  1. Believe it or not, I have not read all of the interpretations in this exhibit, yet, but this one is a gem! And the piece is phenomenal.
