These little gems are hand cut stencils that I used in a edition of gelatin monotypes last year called "All Things New" that were inspired by Revelation 21:1-7. I fell in love with the wonderful array of accidental colors, textures, and patterns that formed when these were used to resist ink from the plate time and time again. I knew then that I would save these pearls, in fact I have a small ziplock full of them, and use them someday in a mixed media painting bearing the same imagery. So it is with a fair amount of excitement that I finally broke out that ziplock bag tonight and began to select some of my favorites! Stay tuned over the next few days for more progress shots.
The edition of gelatin prints are from my "Promises Series" which is a collection of artworks based on various promises made in the Bible. God intended us to spiritually cling to these promises to give us hope and help us overcome the struggles of living in a dark and sinful world.
