An Image Worth Talking About

Sometimes as an artist you get an opportunity to create something that carries the weight of a thousand deep and important conversations, something that conveys a moment in time, a memory, and a hope all in one compelling image.

For me, that moment occurred when I was commissioned to paint this portrait of a family member and his young son. The image of them sharing quality time together reading from the Bible speaks volumes.

I decided to share this painting now because today is International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church; and the image reminds me that the simple act of having a Bible to read, and the act of studying from it with a parent are not things to be taken for granted.
