How do you get a stain out?
It really boils down to the right cleaning solution for the job.
He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:5-7

Returning from her semester abroad, Clare plans to throw herself into her artwork for her senior exhibit at her University. And spend her spare time getting to know Toby Fir a little bit better.
Then a friend’s mother is in a car accident and Clare agrees to finish a portrait commission for her so she can fly home for a few weeks. The only catch is the portrait’s strict deadline. Clare must meet it so her friend can get paid enough to cover the semester’s tuition and graduate in the spring with their class.
And that’s when her palette falls on the floor face down, so to speak. Her strange new neighbor accuses her of copying her exhibition pieces. She inadvertently learns the campus’ most unpopular professor’s best-kept secret, which could cost him his job. And that portrait with the strict deadline? It could be a problem, since the subject has gone missing.
But that’s only the beginning. As Clare faces her own stains, can she protect someone she dislikes, find her missing model, and prove her integrity? Or will her faith be stretched too far?

During my time at University, I, like Clare in Soul Stain, had to produce a Senior Art exhibit to graduate. I also had to produce a second show for the scholarship program I was in that won best James Millikin scholar project of the year. (Below) A shot of my senior work 1994. Includes the drawing of Henry the Eighth I referenced in the book which really did get accidently torn in half.
