Day 11: I Kings
Hello Day 11: 1 Kings -PRAY
So today when i was reading, i was focusing on Solomon and how he kept praying to the Lord and dedicating all things to Him. So i decided to focus prayer. Well as you know its very complicated to try to do a quick and easy art project everyday especially when you don't have all day. I think its really good though because it keeps me thinking all the time and helps me learn more about art and what i like and do not like. It also helps me learn about the bible because i can not do a piece of work and not know what it is about. So i always have to figure what i am reading before i make art. Also if you have any suggestions on a good web site to go to when i need to understand a book of the bible better that would be very helpful. So today's work is different things combined. The background is a painting i made representing when Solomon praises the Lord, i used glass on the painting to represent the temple because its great and bright and when light reflects glass it become bright and when i see brightness it remind me of God. Then i took sharpies and wrote on a broken mirror pray., which is today's word for when Solomon prayed before the entire community of Israel. Then after i photographed both pieces i took parts of them and photo shopped them together into today's piece of art. So my art work with the project will probably never be the best but i think that it really helps me have better techniques and learn so much more with God and art.
1 Kings 8: 12-13, 22-23
12 Then Solomon prayed, “O Lord, you have said that you would live in a thick cloud of darkness. 13 Now I have built a glorious Temple for you, a place where you can live forever!
22 Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in front of the entire community of Israel. He lifted his hands toward heaven, 23 and he prayed,
