My husband kept talking about this video clip he wanted to show to me. Once I saw it, I knew why. I love Cassandra Barney’s artistic style and I can relate to her since I too am “an artist, a wife, a mother and I’m a Mormon.”

I like her work a lot. But I don’t get why she had to state her religion at the end. It’s sort of like Mel Gibson saying “I am a catholic” at the end of Lethal Weapon. That’s sort of a bad example… of a catholic. Also, she said, “I don’t know why more people don’t do this.” That upsets me. WE HAVE JOBS!
I’ll try to explain, The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints knows that a lot of people have no idea (or strange ideas) about what they believe, so they created a website, mormon.org, that answers basic and common questions. Cassandra Barney’s video clip is an “ad” basically to draw people in or light their curiosity to what Mormons believe. There are a handful of cities that are “test cities” for these ads. Actually, Tucson is one. There are billboards of random people that say, “hi, I’m (so-n-so) I like to blah blah blah and I’m a Mormon. Quite a few people at Joey’s work have asked him about the billboards. Joey likes to say to them, “Hi, I’m Joey, I’m a computer programmer, and I’m a MORMON!”
First of all, I am sure her stating that she doesn’t “know why more people don’t do this” was just a way to say, she really likes it. SECOND of all, I have a full time job and I still paint! You have a job and make your music. We make time for what’s important to us.
Yeah, her work is great! She has a sister, Emily McPhie, that paints as well. Completely different style, just as great.
Love your work. Thanks for sharing this video and I too am Mormon. 🙂
