Our River of Relationships

Adonai Art Designs, LLC, represents the Christian abstract art work of Ohio artist, Bob Spence. In stating his testimony, Bob said, “My designs are spirit inspired and spirit driven. I am God’s vehicle to express these feelings in abstract art designs. Without Him, I can do nothing. I have followed the Lord’s direction, believing as written in Proverbs 16:9, ‘in his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.’ I am doing my best to be a good steward, glorify the Father and introduce people to Jesus.”

In introducing people to Jesus, Bob has developed and made available a variety of products and services. All of the products and services are based on his designs with Scriptural references. The current products and services are:

Art Book: In The Beginning...The Art of Bob Spence
Powerpoint Presentation: One Man’s Faith Walk - Happy In the Lord!
Original Art Work
Giclee Prints
Blank Note Cards
Greeting Cards
Bob’s Doodles

We are seeking relationships that help us use this work and these products and services to introduce people to Jesus and to help believers in their personal faith walk. Jesus told the disciples he would make them fishers of men. In order for us to have a successful fishing trip, we need strong relationships and many tributaries to enable us to have a river of revenue to give us the capital needed to continue this work for the Lord.

These relationships, coupled with a specific plan that identifies the who, what, and how, will enable us to meet our goals. As Paul wrote: Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But, one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV) Like Paul we must continue to strive for the Lord. We must keep our eyes focused on the Cross of Christ as we do His work here on earth.
Since the founding and beginnings of Adonai Art Designs, LLC, in 2008, we have had a lot of positive feedback, but very limited positive revenue results. We have had many people write to us and share how much our work has impacted their lives. For this we praise the Lord and are thankful. However, if we are to be good stewards it is imperative that we purposefully build rivers of revenue to support our work for the Lord. To do this, we need your help in connecting us with the right people.

Presentation Opportunities

If you know of any groups that want to have a Biblical presentation, Bob’s program “One Man’s Faith Walk - Happy In the Lord,” please provide us with the contact information. Bob’s presentation is a planned 45 minutes, but can be adjusted to meet the needs of the group. There is no charge for not-for-profit organizations unless the group is outside of Ohio and then travel reimbursement is requested. We also ask for permission to have products for sale at the event, but this is not required.

Book Signings

With only one book, and without national fame, we have had a lot of difficulty getting book signings in area bookstores. If you know someone who is connected with a retail bookstore, an introduction would be greatly appreciated.

Product Licensing Opportunities

We have tried several times to license our greeting cards and blank note cards. So far we have a drawer of rejections - all of which loved the art work and called it highly creative, but did not see the fit with their programs. If you know anyone in the licensing world, an introduction would be great!

In-Home Presentations

If you know of small groups in your church that want to have a “speaker” and an evening of art appreciation with a Scriptural connection, please tell them about Adonai Art Designs. The typical program is an evening event with the host family providing the space, participants, and refreshments. The host family receives a framed giclee print.

Publicist/Commission Only Sales Position

If you know of anyone who would like to promote/sell our products and services, please have them contact us. This is not a salaried position and is commission only.
