Mixed Media Sparrows On Burnt Wood Inspired By The Gospel Of Matthew

Art major Elaine Alpers currently studying at the University of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, created this series of drawings entitled Matthew 10:29-31.

The work is inspired by the verse which reads, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

“It’s a mixed media piece of birds drawn with charcoal on burned wood,” said Elaine. The burned wood represents illness and death, and the image of a bird in flight represents new life and hope.”

The piece won People’s Choice Award at the Avera McKennan Employee and Family Art Show.
