Following showmanship of past master penman, Weidmann takes the traditional calligraphic bird flourish to new heights in his hyper-realism style. This aerial North American Nuthatch soars toward the viewer with boundless ethereal motion through the vintage expression of off-hand flourishing.
In Deuteronomy (4:24), God describes himself as a Consuming Fire- a jealous God who pursues his people despite their constant rebellion against Him. God our Father is the light in the darkness; a fire burning bright who yearns for a relationship with His creation. He looks away from the viewer to show God’s inability to truly commune with His people in the Old Testament because they were cloaked in sin.
This King of Glory came to earth and took on a crown not of jewels, but of thorns and died in our stead (Isaiah 53:4-5). The barbed wire is a modern depiction of the crown of thorns and represents His protection over us. The barbed wire is the only man-made element of the three to show that Jesus took on the sin of man. Through His death and resurrection, the veil between God and His people was torn, and thus the profile is broken as God turns His face towards us.

In Weidmann's widely recognized and acclaimed style, his latest work-in-progress displays two trumpeter swans bound to one another in their flourishes. Featured in Carnivor Wines' 2017 'Devour Life' campaign, we anticipate this piece - Weidmann's largest oil painting to date - to be a wild success.
Swans, known for their fierce fidelity, are positioned here in their protective stance at one's another's back. These two trumpeter swans represent a fierce, protective love that is exceedingly rare in our world today.

Though many people and organizations have put their hands to its parts over the years, it is known that a single artist has not illuminated entirety the Bible for over 400 years. Until now. This title page image is the beginning of Weidmann's upcoming Books of the Bible series in which he will illuminate the title pages for the 66 books. We believe this collaboration of the Word and Jake Weidmann has been ordained for such a time as this.
All orders include an 8" x 10" backstory of the piece.
This limited edition is reproduced with archival inks and fine art paper. All archival materials are used in the high-end printing process.

The hummingbird is romanticized in this dynamic design as it pays tribute to the vintage technique of calligraphic off-hand flourishing. Like the hummingbird, the power of the message is in its details. The entanglement of line work speaks to the essence of love in combining two separate bodies, male and female, as a unified whole. Small imperfections grafted into the symmetry establish its own perfection.

Jesus was born not to change history but eternity. As Christ entered into this dark world two thousand years ago, so the Spirit enters our dark hearts today to bring His light and flourish through us. This is the great gift of an ever living and ever loving God. Even in His name there is promise- Immanuel, God With Us!
Alone we perish, together we flourish.
Alone, a zebra stands out in the Africa landscape, yet together, the stripes of a collective herd serve to confuse and elude its enemies. In breathtaking magnitude, Weidmann explores the theme of power in unification: the impact of many over the independence of one. This is a method that numerous living beings have used physically, mentally, and socially to combat destructive forces for centuries. This tactic is not easily forgotten, nor is the lasting imprint of these vintage forms of flourishing upon the viewer’s vision.
This piece was curated in Denver’s Union Station Crawford Hotel as a permanent installation, July 2014.

Throughout the New Testament, the Holy Spirit is described as the Living Water, and Jesus declared whoever drinks of it shall never thirst again (John 4:13). Through Christ’s death on the cross, we now have access to God through His Holy Spirit who dwells within us. Both eyes of the third lion are shown to convey a greater level of intimacy with a God who pursues us and loves us fiercely.
A message of restoration, renewal and transformation, these hands give hope to the hopeless, comfort to the suffering, and healing to the broken in the promise that, "His eye is on the sparrow."
