Remember when I posted about “The Orchid Lady” aka Pamela Lovett and her incredible paintings? I had seen the first painting above at our church and when I saw it again at Pamela’s I recognized it. I admire it every time I enter our church but had never questioned who the artist was. Pamela told me they were by Mike Lewis of JesusPainter Ministries. Mike is a performance artist and speaks nationwide. He is known for the painting “Christ Eyes”? When he preformed at Pamela’s house, she had a full gospel choir singing while Mike painted. Pamela said the entire experience was amazing. Pamela’s introduction of Mike to me has evolved into a hugh personal obsession. Pamela has it in her home is such a perfect place. It is chilling. The eyes follow you around the room.
Below is a video that my friend Caroline Simas of the blog Designing for the Soul taped at the recent Carolina Art Soiree that our friend Hannah Blanton organizes every year to raise money for GBS/CIDP.
