Scenes Jesus Walked Through

I met Jae Moon Lee and his lovely wife, Michelle Prinz, when they became members at our church a few years back. Both speak English as their second language, and both actively work in The Arts. To my English-speaking California-born self, they seem to ooze Creative Spirit – and they do! Today you’ll hear from Jae; next week, Michelle.

Create Challenge #11: Jae Moon Lee

Creative activity to me means painting.JML mars

I often struggle when I enter the painting room. Coming up with something new can be a major task. Artists are often painfully stuck in their own style.JML moon

Out of the blue I imagine a scene from the desert being scorched by the everlasting sun. An isolated land stripped to its bare bones. A scene Jesus walked through.JML blue

He must have felt very lonely at times. So saddened by sinners like us and being tested by evil. JML solo

This kind of thinking gives me inspiration.JML yellow

I try to connect this random imagination of the landscape in my painting. I am trying to create my own recipe by hopefully adding just the right amount of salt.

 

JMLJae Lee is a native of Seoul and has made the Bay Area his home for the last 30+ years. Having earned a BFA in Painting and Printmaking, Jae has made a living in the Film, TV, and Theater industry as a Scenic Painter.

He is working on a series of paintings for a show soon.
