This past summer I had the honor of being commissioned by the First Congregational Church of Soquel to create artwork for their newly remodeled Parrish Hall. I worked with their pastor and committee to create this five panel piece illustrating the two great commandments. Yesterday we attended their church reception, displaying it for the first time. Here is part of my Artist’s Statement, printed in their bulletin: “The two LOVES, by design, do not totally fit on the canvases, expressing a subtle message that this kind of love is larger than life and and cannot be contained within our borders.” After living with those five paintings in our kitchen (where I work on large canvases!) for quite some time, it was really rewarding to see them hung and displayed on the wall. They were a great group to work with.
