"While creating the star on the Epiphany Banner, the cross just evolved. I was laying the sticks in the center to see where to cut them and the cross became apparent. To me this piece symbolizes the light of Christ, and both the birth and resurrection of Christ. I hope that you will have your own interpretation and that this work of art will enhance your experience of worship during the holy season.
The background flat fabric banner, 92" x 166", was first created in 2008. This year a three dimensional star was added to the painted banner. The glittering twigs and mirrors were necessary to get some dynamic sparkle when viewed from such a long distance and with the low light in the church. The piece took about 22 hours to complete and took over my studio/dining room. There is still glitter in every room in my house."

It sounds wonderful. Would love to see the whole picture of it. I am finally getting back to my painting after 8 years. Jim died 6 years ago this past Jan. 2nd and I know it is time for me to start up again. So happy that you are doing what you are passionate about. God bless you in this coming year. Terry
