This is the biggest painting I’ve done to date, but the subject matter is big. I worked in oils and it is one of my works that has been shown at my church. I wanted to somehow communicate that the battle is spiritual and encompasses both heaven and earth.
The scripture references for this work are Ephesians 6 as well as Ezekiel 37. In Ezekiel 37, God breathes life into dead bones and raises up an army. The central figure in the painting represents this but also represents the believer in Ephesians 6. On his shield Of faith is written Yeshua in Hebrew.
The 4 figures at the corners signify the 4 winds in Ezekiel. They also signify the prayers going forth for all the saints in all the world according to Ephesians 6:18.
