Inspired: The Power of Art and Faith. link
Overall, I was moved by the many expressions of faith and the accompanying, heartfelt and genuine explanations offered by each artist.
I thought Paul's pieces were very strong and represented the Catholic perspective in an honest and powerful way- no doubt about that.
Perhaps this article sums up the exhibit better than I ever could. "They hunger for a Face" ....and the “personal testimony” (of the New Evangelization). It will take time to read-
pause a moment.
Above: The predella below each icon depicts each saints mission and martyrdom. At Paul's request, I am offering only thumbnail views of his completed icons.
This summer Paul and I worked on icon boards for this and other projects.
The icon sides are the traditional clay bole layers and the paint is egg tempera with 24Kt gold halos.
Paul did something very unique here. He angled the boards out slightly and then painted on embellishments Additionally, he chiseled out the ends of the support beams giving them an attractive, layered look.
Here's another artwork of his link.

If you go to Paul's FB site,
you'll see his featured posts.
Next stop. October 10 2015, we will be exhibiting here. This is the former home and art studio of a local liturgical artist. We have no idea how and if tractor rides and liturgical art go together. We'll find out. This is a beautiful location, northwest of the Milwaukee area and worth a day visit. Update in October.
