Starting Deuteronomy - the Vispo Bible

here's an intermediary step on the road to Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy is in the Old Testament and has 34 books. Let's see how long it takes me to complete it. I've decided to have a palette of metalic gold text on a black background for this book. Not sure why. Something to do with Moses, I guess. Golden idols.

Matthew is complete and other updates for the Vispo Bible

Matthew 7
I began the Book of Matthew, 1st book in the New Testament in September, 2018 and completed it in May, 2019. There are 28 chapters.

For the first time, I had some stops and restarts and did several pieces over.

I finally got the right tone when I inverted the text and background to give the ghostliness that I always feel when I think about the life of Jesus, his resurrection etc.

As a child, i always felt like he was a ghost, a benevolent and sad ghost.

So far Matthew 5, 6 and 7 have been published in the Peter F. Yacht Club's VERSeFest 2019 issue.

I have submitted the Book of Matthew to a publisher to consider for publication as a book. I'll let you know what happens. I may stick with this inversion for a bit and do more.

Concrete is Porous Acts I and II, which exhibited in Toronto and Ottawa and featured two of my pieces from Revelation, is not over. Act III will take place in Windsor, Ontario for a month or so, starting at the end of May at the Common Ground Gallery. I have two pieces from Genesis in that show.

Thanks to those of you who've shown an interest in the project, published excerpts from it and bought chapbooks.

I began the Vispo Bible almost 4 years ago, starting in June, 2015. I have completed 6 books in the Old Testament and 8 in the New. Only 53 more books to go!
