I used to think that church work days were great days to get huge projects done. My first summer at HarvestDowntown (Harvest Alliance Church) we painted the entire building – but the lift wasn’t tall enough to reach the top of the bell tower. So, for the next four years we had a church with a bell tower that was white and brown on the top and red ochre and sage on the rest of the building. But we made a statement!

In 2005, we purchased the building and decided it was time to finish painting the bell tower – and so we had another major church work day. This time our lift was tall enough but we didn’t have the expertise or the time to repair the woodwork around the stained glass, the colonnades...

I have heard it said, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Can the same be said of art? I have been to my share of museums in my life, and it seems that every museum has a pot displayed on a white or black box, highlighted by a spotlight. I can’t help but wonder, did the person who cast that pot expect it to be viewed as a work of art? Or, did the potter cast a pot because he knew it would sell? The latter is probably far more likely. The patina and the glazing were probably chosen to merely set the pot apart from the other pots in the market.

What am I creating today that may one day be viewed as art?

Every person is an artist, but the media may not be respected by the self-proclaimed art...
