This contest was introduced to me in early February of this year. Once I read the scripture a lion, The King, was in my plan of action. My love and passion of painting wildlife comes from trekking the globe as a travel agent of 30 years. My use of color and texture with a palette knife gives depth and meaning to this epic piece. The lion is standing on the sword and gospel of John, ready for battle.The church and it's people are represented by the cross to give us strength and hope.
The imagery from the scripture Ephesians 6:10-20 gives life to this piece of art, "Standing on the Promises". The lion represents The King. The sword and gospel are our Armour of God. The cross is our salvation and hope in Christ. Everyday we must put on our Armour of God, ready for battle to fight the opposition.
This is an original piece of work. Standing on the Promises will be used to witness to church congregations and small groups. Prints have already been made that are 22x22.5. for $125.00 each. Contact me directly for purchase and shipping.
Note cards will be available of this painting. I offer private lessons team building classes, and teach at Hobby Lobby. I also give back by teaching at rehab centers.
