It's time to start thinking about Christmas gift giving!

It's a wonderful time of the year and as we remember our Savior during this Christmas season, what would be a better gift that uplifting images of Him for you to enjoy year round?  The gift of fine art is never returned or unappreciated, and if you're not sure of which image to give, you can always gift the "Gift of Art" certificate, now available in our store!  

Don't forget! Shipping is free! And we would be happy to ship directly to the gift recipient as well! See how easy Christmas gift giving can be?

New painting! "Light of the world"

“I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” - John 8:12 This simple passage of scripture defines much of what it means to be Christian.  To follow Christ means a life of compassion and service.  It does not mean that there will not be heartache or trials.  It does not mean we will not stumble and fall.  Hardship is part of life, but Christ, through His atonement will be there to clear the path back to the light, bringing hope to an imperfect people trying to be better.

 

New Mother's Day painting! “Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart”

In this painting, I wanted to portray Mary in a way that I believe many mothers can relate to.  She has found a brief quiet moment to contemplate.  There is a little concern in her eyes, knowing that there will be pain and hardship in the life of her child, but hope as well, for she knows that God loves her and has a plan for her and her child.  She smiles as she reflects on the joy she feels when thinking of her son, turning to the future, confident and anxious, but faithful. Motherhood brings many emotions.  Fear, joy, pain, and hope, concern and nearly inexpressible love can all be part of motherhood.  No doubt Mary felt inadequate, but steadfast and faithful; humbled, though honored to have been chosen to have been part of Christ’s life.

Mary must have often thought of the heavenly messenger that brought her such momentous news, the miracle of his birth, the sign in the heavens, the wise men, the shepherds and angels that bore witness.  As Christ grew, she surely marveled at His wisdom and obedience, knowing that he was the Son of God.

“Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.” – Luke 2:19

Prints are now available in the store!
