I have two artworks that go by the title “By Small and Simple Things.” The first is on paper that is 29 inches x 41 inches and integrates an excerpt from Alma 37:6 – a verse from the Book of Mormon.
The second artwork is smaller and is on paper that is 22 x30 inches. I completed the smaller piece before I moved on to creating the second larger artwork.
Both of these artworks were an exercise in utilizing all the colors in the box, so to speak.
This artwork is on 22×30 paper and is based on Genesis 4:21. It fulfills a long-held desire that I have had to integrate a Hebrew Bible verse into my work. It was influenced by some things I heard while listening to a Hugh Nibley lecture titled “The Heritage of Cain.” He provides some very interesting commentary on the subject of Cain, his descendants and what the Bible has to say in regards to these subjects.
