Artist Link Added: Lisa Riccardi

"Reef" by Lisa Riccardi, copyright

We at the Ascribing Artists Blog are delighted to add Lisa Riccardi's web link to the artists links. Please check out her site at and visit her studio at 16 Main Gallery, 16 Main St., Madison, AL.

Many have asked Lisa why she signs her work with EX 31 instead of her name. Lisa explains "EX 31 stands for the 31st chapter of the book of Exodus in which we learn that the Lord had chosen specific people and filled them with the skill they needed to build the Tent of Meeting and all of the articles of worship. I believe we have been given abilities from Him which we need to exercise and make sure He gets the honor every time."

Keep a watch for her featured artist spot on the Ascribing Artist Blog.

Scripture: Exodus 31
Bezalel and Oholiab
1 Then the LORD said to Moses, 2 “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, 3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts. 6 Moreover, I have appointed Oholiab son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan, to help him. Also I have given ability to all the skilled workers to make everything I have commanded you: 7 the tent of meeting, the ark of the covenant law with the atonement cover on it, and all the other furnishings of the tent— 8 the table and its articles, the pure gold lampstand and all its accessories, the altar of incense, 9 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, the basin with its stand— 10 and also the woven garments, both the sacred garments for Aaron the priest and the garments for his sons when they serve as priests, 11 and the anointing oil and fragrant incense for the Holy Place. They are to make them just as I commanded you.”
