Recent Work: Recess!

A recent job for a CD cover I did. The song is by the group "Recess!", and is about... well, allergies. Food alleriges, especially. This group, from what I understand, performs at schools. Just a cute, fun little illustration of cute kids. I could do this kind of thing all day long....

"Forsaken", acrylic on canvas, copyright 2011 Keelan Parham

"Eloi Eloi, lamasabacthani".... "My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? " Those have always been some of the saddest, most powerful words in the entire Bible to me. God promises to never leave us nor forsake us, but He DID forsake His only begotten son, the earthly incarnation of Himself. And it was all so WE could come back to Him, our sins paid for. This piece haunts me as I look at it. It depicts Jesus on the cross, at the exact moment God turned His back on Him.

I am SO glad I will never know what that feels like...

Another recent painting I did, in my series of Biblical images. The "Fall" of Adam and Eve.

I've always harbored a secret desire to just be a painter. So, occasionally I will indulge myself and paint something.
I love Picasso, cubism, Covarrubbias, Braque, lots of abstract stuff, so that's what I like to paint. Here's a recent one I did.  I am doing a series of Biblical paintings, and this is the first. I call it "Tempted". It's of Adam and Eve in the Garden, kissing. Except that Eve is looking off at the Forbidden Fruit.
