    His Bride Waits

    In the early days, women didn’t have charts and apps to track their fertility, but would have known the timing of their cycles by the phases of the moon. In that first month after Gabriel’s visit, Mary would not have felt too different than she had before. It would be months before she would show, and even longer before she would feel Jesus’ little flutters. But looking out at the face of a new moon, she would have known in a very concrete way that what the angel said was true. How her heart must have thrilled with joy!

    This is the castle where my great great grandmother on my mother’s side was raised. According to the story, she was knocked up by the gardener and disinherited. She moved to Canada where she worked as a hat maker to provide for herself and her infant son. She eventually married and raised a family. When she passed away her husband remarried, and his jealous new wife burned all of her things, including journals, clothes, and photographs—which is too bad, because those would have been super cool to look through. This castle, however, still stands as a historic landmark in Slovakia.

    It is a dream of mine to visit there someday and experience in person this beautiful remnant of my family history.

    Valley of Despair

    $20.00$45.00

    A world without God digs a valley within the boundaries of our physical reality, so as to be a tyrant over all that is contained within it. Inside those walls, we are master. We can prod and cut and examine the tangible world until she exposes all her secrets. By restricting ourselves to that which can be empirically proven and rejecting any possibility of the transcendent, we get to decide what gives our lives meaning, if it has any at all.

    You could think of the carvings depicted in this image as great monuments erected by the people who walked this valley in ages past. A life without purpose is a haunting path to walk.

    Aged Sherlock

    I’ve always been intrigued by the Sherlock character, in particular the TV series starring Benedict Cumberbatch. In this study I imagined Sherlock as an older gentleman, wizened by years of relentless investigation. This image accompanies my blog post: What I Learned From The Great Mouse Detective

    Adam’s first sin was not to eat of the fruit. It was when he cowered in the face of evil, failing to protect his wife and be obedient to God. Read the full post here: Studies » Adam’s First Sin
