11”x 14” art print on 180 lb bright white premium matte paper, custom trimmed.

Dr. Sheila Delony asked if I would paint the cover art for her forthcoming book, "This Year, Lord: Teachers' Prayers of Blessing, Liturgy, and Lament." She didn't know exactly what she wanted for the cover, but she knew what she didn't want: a stock image of teacher desks, or apples, or #2 pencils. As Sheila hailed from west Texas, I wanted to try and convey an open sky and a big, parading sun. The bottom third of my original draft fell flat, but that sun radiating way up there in the sky refused to budge. That's when the barbed-wire fence made a brief cameo, disappearing over the horizon into the next unknown.

Shipped flat. Pre-order now for delivery in 2-4 weeks.
