I don't start painting the next set for my church until September...well, maybe August. That gives me the whole summer to work out the images and decide what I want to do.
One of my ideas was to paint a stack of black and white photographs...or perhaps sepia tone. Something old fashioned. I'd only put in bits and pieces of color, sort of to make a point.
For the story of the temptation of Jesus, I was thinking along the lines of Him being alone and of how He quoted Scripture in response to Satan's attacks. It's a beautiful thing to remember. If my mind is filled with the word of God, then my foundation is solid.
I'll post more ideas and sketches as the weeks go by...
