Sharing Scripture through Visual Translation

Several years ago I began studying whole books of the Bible by drawing a simple sketch of each scene, trying to capture all the important details, and then incorporating them into very large (5 ft x 7 ft) paintings of the entire book. I have completed Mark (95 scenes), Acts (85 scenes), the Life of Abraham (61 scenes) and Revelation, as well as smaller paintings of the first 7 chapters of John.

Here is the Mark 1-9…

Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”

I did not realize it had been a whole year since I last entered a blog...will try and start getting better at making more frequent visits!  I have enjoyed reading everyone else so much I don't really feel worthy but I know we all have something to contribute.  It may not be what the majority likes, but it also may be something that someone else loves...and with that in mind I submit another blog entry...

I took a wonderful writing class from a friend who goes to my church who writes…

The Most Important Thing I'll Say Today

I have the opportunity to interact with people all throughout the day. That probably doesn't make me all that unique. I bet you have the same opportunities as me. Because I live in a very virtual world, most of my meetings are by phone, Skype or WebEx.

One of the big questions is, "how will I use today's God-given opportunities?"

Clyde's Reading List

Here is the list of books I have read in the last few years (not to be confused with my film list). My reading tends to happen in fits and starts. My books are my mentors. They find themselves congregating all over the house. Unfortunately only one out of three benefit from the air-conditioning inside the house. The other two thirds sweat it out in the garage. I list the most…
