SCULPTING CLOUDS

SCULPTING CLOUDS ———–

JIM PECHA, B.ARCH, CHRISTIAN ARTIST,
MINISTER OF CREATIVITY, COPYRIGHT 2014 ——–

For generations New Mexico families put God first. They reminded themselves and others with Crosses and statues. If they could have, they would have sculpted the clouds into a cross. What would you sculpt into the clouds today? I think that’s why I felt a connection with the Spanish and Indian young women who had strong ties with the Church. They painted and sculpted crosses with CHRIST. I tied into their religious beliefs when they saw I painted watercolors of the old adobe Churches and crosses. We posed for each other’s paintings. They asked me to pose naked for their pictures of the cross, as my Mother started when I was a teenager. She stimulated within me images and stories associated with the Cross. They may be too intense for the worldly people of today, but the Cross is first in my life now and if I could I would sculpt the clouds daily into a Cross to remind everyone to put God first in their lives.
