"The Spirit and the Brush: Painting Devotionals by Thomas Kegler"
I am excited to announce the release of my first art book. "The Spirit and the Brush: Painting Devotionals by Thomas Kegler" is an art book containing a collection of over 120 of my paintings, along with several drawings, created over the past decade. It is arranged to guide the reader through a year of contemplation: Spring’s renewal; Summer’s celebration; Autumn’s bounty; and Winter’s rest. The book is presented as a 365 daily devotional. Each image pairs with three biblical passages (one per calendar day, leap year excluded). It is an invitation to meditate daily on the world’s natural beauty and truth through the lenses of the arts and spirituality.
This 9x12 hard cover book is a tribute to my late wife, Kimberly.
Please consider supporting my Kickstarter campaign
I have initiated a Kickstarter campaign to help cover the high costs of printing as I am self-publishing this project. To express gratitude for your support, contributors can receive (depending on the sponsorship level) the signed book, the limited edition collector's run, original artwork, or attendance to one of my hands-on workshops.
The book will be available for purchase through my website after the Kickstarter campaign ends in January/February 2020.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the Kickstarter campaign in a few weeks!
The book is anticipated to begin shipping early 2020.
10% of the proceeds will be donated to cancer research, Hospice, environmental organizations, and other charitable foundations to support their efforts and all the good they do.
