Unique art to bring warmth and beauty to your home or church

Inspiration: The hymn “Hosea” written by Weston Priory, often sung in my church, inspired me. Lyrics are: “Come back to me with all your heart. Don't let fear keep us apart. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.”


Here Jesus is just beginning his ministry. The drape color previews his loving sacrifice of Himself for us. I hoped, while painting, to show the Jewish Hebrew origins of Jesus, with olive skin and darker hair. I respect the many other ways that Jesus has been painted through the ages. I hope this image, offered from my heart with humility, expresses His endless compassion and love.

Since the art was conceived to use for a counseling center, I had hoped to show Jesus welcoming people to draw closer to Him, to receive comfort and hope in the face of great difficulties. I especially wanted children coming into the center to feel welcomed and safe. Some computer screens may modify the color of the art. Some may make the image lighter or darker than it is. It has rich red and burgundy in the drape, within a field of multicolored muted grasses and flowers. Kind of print: Photographic print made by a professional printer, Midwest Photo Company, approved and signed by the artist.

There is also a canvas giclee edition of #250 in a large size of 30x15 available from: Art for Conservation (LINK)
