Today has been an amazing day. I spent most of the early morning listening to the Daily Audio Bible and doodling. This doodle I did above was inspired by a video I watched that was about an artist who designed John Mayer’s CD cover for his album Born and Raised. A great student of mine pointed me in the direction of this album. I stumbled upon this video–click here and you can go watch it too.
So, the style of old vintage sign art inspired the above design.
After adding all of the elements I enjoy, I realized that the entire piece is so symbolic. I wasn’t really planning for it, but it happened just like that–as art does all the time for me!
Here it is:
SAVED by the KEY which, of course, is JESUS. We ARE free (like the birds) and bright shinning like the SON (or sun!) because the veil was torn when Jesus became the sacrifice for our sins. He unlocked the door for us. How amazing it is to be SAVED BY GRACE! You should be able to find all of that stuff in the design. I loved creating this. I love that God gives me the talent to create things. To Him be all the glory!
