The little girl in this piece is painted in black and white as she represents the true values that may be viewed as archaic and pointless by the world. The colored background is the world that surrounds us everyday, there is so much beauty but also so much chaos, and we must choose what parts of the world we will be partakers in. Upon looking closer one will notice that the little girl also wears colored glasses. this shows that although the world may not view her for what she really is she can see all things in their true and living color.
In this piece Adam is shown as he is about to partake of the forbidden fruit. One will notice that the center blue portion is the garden of Eden which is a representation of the celestial kingdom of God, while the starry boarder is a representation of the telestial kingdom, or the state in which we currently live. As the fruit is observed it is seen that the vine of this fruit leads to the telestial existence. However, as the word joy is observed it is seen that joy overlaps on both the celestial realm as well as the telestial realm but its located more so in the celestial realm. The reason behind that is because man must experience both types of existences to know joy, but he must also choose to live a celestial life if he is to ever know a fullness of joy.

This is a picture of the Rexburg temple that I painted for my friends Bryce and Beki Call, when they were married there. The decorations on the Rexburg temple have a grain theme thus the grain in front of the temple.

This piece shows a woman who is labeled as insane by society. The scene around her is a view of what is going on in her head. The words written on the water color tape are her thoughts in word form. As one looks at this piece I would hope that they would try to gain a greater understanding of what the outcasts of society are going through and thinking. I also hope that this piece causes the viewer to ponder the treasures of knowledge that many of these outcasts have to offer.
