"...the Lord prospers his people in precious things of every kind and art..." - Hel. 12:2
The Artwork of Brent Borup
Through years of combining digital designwork with traditional drawing and painting, Brent Borup has developed a unique style all his own. His artwork is often times created by using a combination of photography, drawing, scanning, merging, morphing, 3D modeling, digital painting, printing, tracing, re-scanning, digital alteration, digital color correction, and of course... traditional oil painting. It is a method that Borup has dubbed "Digital Mixed Media".

President Thomas S. Monson has recently expressed that not only every home should have a picture of a temple hanging in a prominent place, but every child's room should also house a picture of the temple. I belive that images of the Holy Temple will not only serve as a reminder of sacred covenants to current temple recommend holders, but also as a goal for those who have not yet enjoyed the blessings of the Temple. This is why much of my artwork has and will continue to focus on different temples all around the world.

The "Light in the Storm" Series
"You are never lost when you can see the temple. The temple will provide direction for you and your family in a world filled with chaos. It is an eternal guide post which will help you from getting lost in the "mist of darkness"
My temples are often portrayed as very solid looking and radiant sanctuaries in a lush landscape with dark and stormy skies. I do this to bring a sense of peace and saftey that the temple truely can bring us in an ever changing and sometimes turbulant world. As we attend the temple and live a temple worthy life, Heavenly Father's blessings will flow upon us. All of those that have felt the peace within the temple truely understand that it can be a "light in the storm"
