What a fun morning we had yesterday! Check out some of the great pictures of our little artists working on their crayon relief projects 😊
Blessed to spend my Saturday morning in fellowship with other creatives at Purple Robin Reserve! Not only does this special shop carry the creations of over 140+ local artisans (of which I am thankful to be one), it also promotes a heart for service and donates a percentage of its income back to nonprofit organizations! Thank you Purple Robin Reserve for caring well for your artisans and your community! Here are some candid shots they captured during our time together. If you look close, you will see a picture of a fellow artist, Dave Pat Gibson, and I sharing in conversation ☺
Hi Jeremy! I hope you & your family are doing well. I’ve been seeing your artwork posted from time to time & have wondered how I can get some. Please let me know.
Thanks. I hit like on your page.
Just saw your beautiful Trinitarian work at the doctor's office today. It is so lovely!

Jeremy is an artist, educator, and advocate exploring the interplay between faith and art. This page is a tool for sharing his creations.

Jeremy's involvement in the arts as participant, educator and advocate are deeply linked to his faith. He believes that man, as the apex of God's creation and a reflection of His nature, is tasked with the continuation of the creative process. The majority of his watercolor and ink creations translate the teachings of the Bible into a visual interpretation. The recipient of three degrees in theology, Jeremy has a heart for the church and the role of the arts in spiritual formation. His style is a combination of his Pennsylvania Dutch heritage and an ever-growing appreciation of historic Christian symbolism. It is his prayer that his work will remind the Church of their visual history and its immensely important message for today.

Happy to share today's newest sunflower painting ☺

I will never grow tired of creating sunflowers! They are glimpses of hope and reminders of the joy that only the Master Creator can bring. Sharing this with a prayer that hope and joy remain vibrant in your time of sanctuary 🌻🎨

St. Patrick's Day Wrap-up... Earlier I posted about our stay-at-home art project, "Hearts and Clover." While my kiddo decided the project was an easy 20 min. filler, I obviously got lost in the enjoyment of using watercolor again and made it an all evening event... thinking it might soon be finished... lol

Today's stay-at-home art project for St. Patrick's Day πŸ€
.
.
.
.
My son recently finished reading "Flame Over Tara," a historical fiction book based on Patrick's missionary work in Ireland.
.
.
.
.
Today we creatively reflected on Patrick's godly legacy by painting "Hearts & Clover." Patrick told the Irish people about a Triune-God who loved them through the example of a simple three-leafed clover. Today, in the midst of a troubled world, may this little image remind you that you are also loved!

Special time this morning with Kelly of the Northen Lancaster Hub setting up the details for this showing in April!
.
.
.
.
My show, "Journey of Grace," will highlight pieces from my career/creative journey over the past five years. It is a reminder and testimony of God's grace along the journey...
.
.
.
.
If you are in the Lancaster/Ephrata area, we hope you can join us on April 3rd from 6:00-8:00pm for the opening reception at the Northen Lancaster Hub (560 South Reading Rd.; Ephrata, PA 17522). Soli Deo Gloria!

Today I painted on leather for the first time! One of my students is studying about the Lewis and Clark expedition. Because their guide, #sacagawea, was a Native American, we decided to create parfleches as part of our art studies. Parfleche are carrying bags made of buckskin or rawhide used to carry clothing, food, and little objects accumulated by the owner.
.
.
.
.
I instructed the students that they could mimic traditional Native American designs or personalize their project. It didn't take long for my own Pennsylvania Dutch heritage to emerge as I worked on my example πŸ˜‰

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! Tonight at our after school art club we celebrated the life and legacy of artist Theodore Geisel by creating "Horton Mobiles" and "Seuss-Inspired Birthday Cakes!"

Snuck in a few minutes of work this weekend on our "Once Upon a Time" found object castle. At the rate I am going on my example, the kids at the summer reading art club may have their projects done before I do!

My schedule has been a bit busy lately between family, teaching and ministry. BUT... when a friend contacts you and tells you they are stepping out of their comfort zone and taking part in their neighborhood home garden tour... AND... asks you if you can do some garden art to help them out... Well, you've just got to do it! ! !
.
.
.
.
I found these cast-off lids to old sewing machine cabinets at our local @art_of_recycle shop and thought they would make great garden plaques. Can't wait to see how they turn out!

Just a simple blue pitcher. It's a start...
.
.
.
.
I woke up this morning with thoughts of my grandmother and a need to paint. But what subject was near at hand that would lend itself to the exercise? I looked around the kitchen and there in a partially hidden corner sat a miniature ceramic. It seemed perfect in so many ways...
.
.
.
.
I was in seventh or eighth grade when I painted this miniature cream pitcher as a gif for Grandma. It reminded me of a larger one she had on display in a special extra bedroom with a brass bed where very few people were welcomed to enter. However, instead of hiding it away, she put my timid attempt proudly on display in a place where she saw it everyday.
.
.
.
.
Years later as the contents of her home were divided, that little blue pitcher was given back to me. Today, as I work on a series called "Vessels of Service," this little pitcher has taken on a new meaning...
.
.
.
.
By nature, a pitcher is not an exalted vessel. Within biblical imagery it conjures up stories of service. Pictues of kindness flow from its spout. Perhaps we loosely associate Mary as the handmaiden of the Lord. Hard working humility offered in sacrificial service... these were the traits of my grandmother.
.
.
.
.
My painting is not finished yet. In no way does it capture this concept... but it's a start...

Today my son and I are working on a prototype for the summer art club @strasburglibrary. So much fun trying to channel our friends @countryconjuring & @art_of_recycle in creating a found object castle! .
.
.
.
This summer our projects will be fairytale-related to fit with the library system's theme, "Imagine Your Story." Looking forward to lots of magically-creative fun!

Playing with texture again tonight! Thanks to the encouragement of my friend, @art_and_crafting_by_inc , I am giving eggshells a try...😊 It's a mess but I am excited to see how it turns out!

[02/05/20]   Life is made up of seasons. As I dedicate more of my time to artistic ministry and education, the time has come to let go of other ventures. It is bittersweet to share that as of this week my cards will no longer be available at Purple Robin Reserve in Lititz, PA.

That being said, I am excited to share that the schedule for "Art in Ephrata" has been released by the Northen Lancaster Hub and I will be serving as their artist-in-residence for April. My work will be on display throughout the month and there will be a public "First Friday" opening on April 3rd. Hope to see some of our friends there! 🎨

I have loved the idea of paint boxes for a long time! When I was suddenly blessed by a friend with left over craft paint and inherited a sturdy @melissaanddougtoys farm case that was being discarded by the library, it was time for a weekend #diy project!
.
.
.
.
Using Barb Rosenstock & Mary Grandpre's #thenoisypaintbox as my color inspiration, I set to work creating a small place of order for my students to grow through creative chaos 😊
.
.
.
.
Like the idea of creating your own paint/craft station? All you need is some sturdy leftover packaging and an ounce of creativity! In addition to The Noisy Paint Box, you may want to find a copy of Karen Ackerman & Betsy Lewin's Araminta's Paint Box 🎨

Its hard to believe Valentine's Day is just around the corner! I am enjoying coming up with designs from left over odds and ends to make with my students this year.
.
.
.
.
Card making doesn't have to be reserved for the classroom. Here's a thought... If you are looking for a low cost way to communicate love to your children this Valentine's, try sitting down together to create one-of-a-kind tokens of your love. It only takes a little bit of time and a few materials you probably have laying around the house but the memories you make together will last long beyond the experience!

Just finished my teaching example for a lesson with my private student tomorrow. Tying into his lesson on the American Revolution, we will look at Colonial artist Charles Willson Peale. Peale was known for creating paper-cut silhouette portraits. Rather than cutting ours out, we will fill the outlines with images and words that describe the subject.

Thanks to my wife, Anda, for being my model for my "Biographical Silhouette" example 😊
