Laetare Art Series

Each Lent, the Church of the Nativity in Cincinnati hosts the Laetare Art Series. This image of Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman is one of the five works I will be contributing to the show. All were originally commissioned by the Archdiocese of Brisbane, Australia, for Lent 2009. I look forward to the opening this Saturday, March 13, especially to seeing the work by the other contributing artists Bill Feinberg, Fr. Jim Hasse, Nicholas Markell and Paula Wiggins. The Adagio Trio will perform with vocalist Teresa DeZarn Jackson. All are welcome; Please visit http://www.nativity-cincinnati.org/ for additional information.

  1. Is this the current cover of The Upper Room daily devotional? I thought I recognized it! Very nice work!

Digital experiments

My illustration for the February 2014 Celebration cover is meant to convey the many layers of meaning in the scriptures available to homilists.

Though this illustration is unabashedly digital, I started by sketching by hand. Then I cut the basic shapes out of plastic with a knife, also by hand. At that point I scanned them to my computer, added color and manipulated them in Photoshop.



Another Dorothy Day cover

My image of the mature Dorothy Day, originally created for a column in St. Anthony Messenger, gets a second life on the cover of this new edition of The Reckless Way of Love recently published by Plough. They did a great job with the book design.

Icon of the Seasons

I was asked to provide the seasonal panels for this icon which is the focal point of the Chapel of Christ the Healer at the new Mercy Health headquarters. I enjoyed the challenge of attempting something new (painting large) and the opportunity to collaborate with Schickel Design, who created this beautiful sacred space for the folks at Mercy. Martha Schickel Dorff designed the framework for this icon and carved the corpus.
Christmas season is shown above. There are five other sets of panels.
