Welcome to the first post/portrait in my Fine Art Self-Portrait Challenge for the year 2015! I thought this would be a fun project to challenge my skills and creativity! I will be doing one conceptual self-portrait per month with a Bible verse as the inspiration. I have so many ideas and verses I love, and I’m already dreaming of so many concepts to create through the months of 2015. I’m excited to see how I grow through this project, and I hope you’ll stick around for it too!! I decided that for January I should begin with one of the more simple concepts I had in mind that is inspired by Matt. 5:14-16
Fine Art Self-Portrait – Month I of XII:
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” – Matt. 5:14-16
It is my deepest desire that I will always be a light in this world. There is far too much pain and darkness all around, and I want to exude the light of Christ that is filled with love, kindness, and care. I don’t want to hide my light or keep it all to myself, but I want to share it with others and love like Jesus loved. I want to be someone that reaches out to take someone’s hand who is lost in the dark… I want to take my candle and help them see the way. I want to shine brighter and let my love and care for others grow deeper every single day!
