Mission Commission

Last month, I was commissioned to do a painting for the recently reopened LDS Macon Mission. The task was to find a scripture to illustrate. Every Mormon missionary knows Doctrine and Covenant 4 by heart, so I knew if I picked key words, phrases, and images for a montage representing that passage, they would understand the piece.  I used gouache on an opaque acrylic under-painting, with some pencil for this piece.
