For this Saturday’s WPA poster, I chose this winter scene from Lake Placid in New York. I like the unusual combination of background colors. They are so appropriate for the snowy scene that you can almost feel the cold.

Federal Art Project artist Jack Rivolta created this silkscreen winter poster for the New Deal’s Works Progress Administration during the late 1930s or early 1940s. Image courtesy Library of Congress.

I especially like the teamwork Rivolta depicted on the bobsled. No one is pulling in another direction. No one is jumping overboard. All four bobsledders are intent on one goal, speeding down the bobsled run together.

Unity of purpose is what God wants for His children. It’s what we want for our own families, too.

Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ,
if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit,
if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete 
by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love,
united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
Philippians 2:1-2
