Vattimo,Stephen J.-They Dropped Their Nets And Left Their Boat To Follow Jesus
They Dropped Their Nets And Left Their Boat To Follow Jesus / Painting Acrylic / 11"x14" / 5000.000 USD

Description: This a painting of a first century Gallian Fishing boat, most likely the very type of boat used by Peter when He was called by Jesus to follow him. This illustration is part of a bigger of mural I am working on, about the ministry Of Jesus The Christ. If you notice the boat is beached facing backward, with the fishing Net coming from the back of the boat. This to signifies that Peter, like all the other apostle Except Mathew The Tax Collector, would drop their fishing occupation and follow Jesus, Who would make them fishermen of men's souls. Here is a true about me as an Artist. Two parts of this painting gave me trouble in carrying out this illustration. The fist was illustrating the ropes of the rigging. My first attempt was horrendous, it took me second try to get it right. I had to look up pictures of ropes on the internet, to overcome this challenge. The second, was illustrating the rocks on the bottom of Sea of Galilee, and the reflection of the boat on the water. I must have made about 5 attempts until it finally clicked. Even when I kept looking at reflection of boats on water, I could not make the break through. In creating the kind of art that I do, it is very rare to find a model that meets all my requirement for what I am illustrating. So, it takes photos and imagination, and the grace of God to create an illustration that look better than a stick figure, and communicates the message intended. So I figure God has me go through these challenges to keep me humble, because without humility God is not able to use our talents for His glory. Written Stephen J. Vattimo October 12, 2017

ART COME Alive: Stephen J. Vattimo Added by Danny Huffman on March 13, 2013. Saved under Huffman, Local Arts, Local Culture Plus, Local People Tags: art, Artist's Square, painting, racquel cruz, Vattimo Stephen J. Vattimo was born, raised and lived in the Philadelphia area most of his life. As a creative spiritual person, he is involved with creating works in fine art, poetry, short-humorous stories and articles on socialism, politics, and spirituality. He considers his work living-art because it is communicative in many ways and has a direct message with each creation. Through his works, the viewer gets to know who he really is. Metaphorically speaking, Stephen wears his heart on his sleeve. Stephens work is inspired by his love for God, family, and his country. Held by the belief that: We honor these things by conducting ourselves with nobility and morals, Stephen's vulnerability and passion is shared in all his work. Bound by these values, he believes we will have a prosperous society and an abundant life. Ultimately, that our nation will be blessed with not only materialistic richness, but also the riches of love and family that God has given to us. What is Stephen's style of art? Most of his work has been described as being folk, primitive, surreal and illustrative. His medium varies as he works with acrylics, pen, and ink. His preferred medium is with acrylics as it offers a wider opportunity to create multiple textures and effects. Adding to that, the medium because it dries fast, is non- toxic, and cleaning it up with water makes it fast and easy. Stevefinal Before Stephen creates his artwork on canvas he sketches the design, carefully planning each object he is going to incorporate in his paintings using a sketch pad. He does extensive research before even beginning to transfer vision onto canvas. It is not uncommon for him to repeat his research as not to miss the details he is carefully trying to convey. To bring his message home, he often introduces symbolism within his work. gently guiding the reader while allowing multiple interpretations without constraint. Stephen has original work in colleges, community centers, and coffee shops. He is also an essential figure within Internet publishing in art, writing, and poetry communities. He hopes that his art can be a blessing to his viewers and an honor to God.
