A triptych of plates, "The Son of God", "Temptationis Oblitus" and "The Struggle for Favor", with Mitch Miller, Brianna Dick, Tessa Klein, Shawna Shea, Zmercedes Sunshine Beito with the direction by Dan Miller. We had an amazing and creative afternoon together. My goal was to take a traditional wet plate of Jesus Christ in a traditional sense to honor the old masters that came before me with painting and sculpture.
