Being an American Artist, allows me to use my work to reflect on my upbringing in the heartland of American farming: Avon, Ohio.
Religion was important with my upbringing. It was not always completely understood or upheld, but there was a wholesome thread of Christianity.
The fears and hope of being a Christian gripped me. I believed in a strong sense of right and wrong, though like most Christians, failed in my human form to uphold it. But I always had a strong sense that Christianity was there and very real.
This painting depicts American architecture and religion beautifully. There is something intangible said in this image. Even when covered or hidden by human tradition, belief in God is always real.
