The ETERNAL Exhibition

The Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship will provide the financial funding I need to make a documentary titled ETERNAL that announces the "second Coming of Christ" through an exhibition of paintings and sculpture of the New Jerusalem.

This documentary is an evangelistic outreach to share the living reality of God's love and draw others to Christ through an opening night exhibition, showcasing the New Jerusalem in paintings and sculpture. With trumpet and fanfare and colorful banners "the Holy City coming down out of Heaven from God" (Rev. 21:10) is ushered in u'ith prophetic song and dance.

The New Jerusalem exhibition will allow others to experience God's loving grace and be spiritually refreshed, and through the power of the Holy Spirit to personally encounter the resurrection hope of Jesus Christ. It is still the same story told throughout history - His story. He's just looking for new ways to tell it, so He can reach people with his touch,” As a Christian filled with the Holy Spirit, I walk in the full flow of the Holy Spirit's power and anointing, that allow the spiritual gifts to operate while ministering to the hurts and needs of others. During this opening, I anticipate all the spiritual gifts through the Holy Spirit to be flowing in ministering to people. These spiritual gifts include words of knowledge, words of wisdom" prophecy, healing, and miracles. And through God's embracing felt Presence, hearts will be touched and lives forever changed.

My desire is for each person to be touched, as I have, by the transforming living reality of our Creator's love. As God's glory is supernaturally manifested, I envision miracles and healings taking place. People will not only be touched by his Presence, but delivered from bondages that hinder them from experiencing more abundantly the life that Jesus came to give. In the spirit realm, where eternity, time, and space meet, miracles transpire. In the visible manifest Presence of God-Theophany-all things are possible.

My vision through sharing the New Jerusalem paintings and sculpture and making this documentary, ETERNAL, is to give each person the opportunity to make a decision, a spiritually conscious choice, to receive the promise of a future and a hope and life eternal that comes from believing and knowing Jesus Christ as our Savior, and making Him Lord of our lives. To know a love so deep that He was willing to die for each of us so we could live life more abundantly is an awesome gift; it is "the pearl of great price." His love will be celebrated with prophetic ministry, music, an interpretive dance team, and a spiritual cabaret of song.

My art reflects my spiritual journey and celebrates my inner commitment and personal relationship with Jesus. Both paintings and sculpture overflow from worship and praising the name of Jesus. Each is an expression of God's love that I feel in my inner being-welling up within me, coming forth from the deepest part of me.

The New Jerusalem paintings and sculpture were illuminated in prophetic dreams and a vision four years ago as “I saw the Holy City coming down out of Heaven from God." (Rev. 21.2).

These paintings and sculpture are divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit and echo God's heart for each of us.

Sculptural strands of shimmering leaves of light appear to shower down from Heaven, creating a meditative labyrinth of spiritual passage ways. These diaphanous leaves are whispers from God - the promise of the new, laced in love and steeped in hope. The moment is transcended, "And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations." (kev.22.2)

The spiritual reality of the New Jerusalem is before us now!

"Whosoever shall hear His voice, let him come." (Rev. 22:17) Both universal and individually, the resounding words of Jesus come alive and resonate "I am the way, the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but through me." (John 14:6) He is calling each of us to come, to follow Him.

Each New Jerusalem painting is a love letter from God. As the Holy Spirit leads, I draw directly onto the canvas, translating God's "voice" into lyrical overtures. These expressions of His love flow in and through me to all who will listen. Paintings of intricate, penciled, lyrical lines interweave, creating puzzle pieces that take shape and thus form labyrinthine maps that lead us on! These gossamer and incandescent painted passageways kaleidoscope into a realm of Heavenly hidden mysteries and winged life, celebrating the New Jerusalem. I feel His heartbeat as I paint. As He shares His heart with me it feels exhilarating and liberating; I are at times, overwhelmed by His magnificent Presence. As He privileges me to partner with Him in this poetic dance as co-creator, I stand in awe of Him.

Filming this ever-expanding and unfolding mystery will give others a portal into Heaven. In this spiritual realm, where eternity and time come together, we have a glimpse of glory. Documenting the prophetic content of the New Jerusalem paintings and sculpture and their healing effects through the Holy Spirit will give others eyes to see that "Jesus is the same yesterday, today', and forever." (Heb. 3:18) The New Jerusalem paintings and sculpture, ranging in size from 5 feet by 8 feet to 12 feet by 20 feet, echo God's love for us as a people, a nation, and give us not just spiritual "eyes to see," but "ears to heat'' Jesus' words. "Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of prophecy in this book." (Rev 22:7)

"Every knee will bow, every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord." (Phil. 2:11) He is the love song we'll sing forever! My vision through the New Jerusalem exhibition and through this documentary, ETERNAL, is for others to be touched, as I have by the living reality of God's love. "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

This funding will make it possible for me to rent the necessary technical equipment, hire a producer, videographer, and editor, as well as create copies of the documentary to accompany the traveling exhibition.
