Just Make Art

Posted: January 1, 2021 in Uncategorized

One of the other things to slip for me in 2020 was the amount of art I was making “just for fun.” I am hoping to remedy that this year as well. Don’t get me wrong, I made a lot of art for various projects, sermon series, etc., but I find that it’s when I just sort of let my mind wander and just start creating for the sake of creating, it helps me grow creatively. As most of my readers know, I tend to enjoy creating low brow/pop art in the tradition of artists like Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, monsters, creatures and wild vehicles. Mainly I just do these things as a sort of “creative stretching exercise.” I’ve also had the privilege of connecting online with a pretty extensive community of artists online who enjoy a similar style, and I really value building relationships with other creatives.

Here are a few that I did… just for fun.

Well this year, this blog has suffered a bit. I learned a lot of new skills, and added quite a few responsibilities to my church ministry and I finished out my Masters Degree. It was a lot of work—a very busy year but in spite of all that as happening in our world thing year, I really felt blessed to be working all through. I learned so much, read a ton of books, and did a lot of creative work. What I did not do was a lot of blogging, and I really want to remedy that this year.

Part of my calling I feel is to help people to do creative ministry, and this blog has always been a part of that. So this year, I plan to create resources to that end. My hope is to create a resource a week and share them here. Some will be big. Some will be small and they will all be part of a larger project that I will be developing. I also plan to add more content here throughout the year. I want to make this a very useful resource for anyone who wants to use their gifts to serve the Lord.

My prayer for you all is that you would realize who you are in Christ and that you would see the value of the gifts our Heavenly Father has invested in you. If you are in Christ, you are a beloved child of God.

Remember Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Happy New Year and may God bless you.
