Men of Galilee, 46" x 25" (Framed Print)
by Simon Dewey
Men of Galilee came about with the idea that in this world, where we have so few honorable male role models, the supreme example of true manhood will always be there for our sons, grandsons, nephews and brothers. Such has been my hope for my own two sons as they have looked for men to emulate.
How often did the Savior of the world take time with his cherished little ones? This is a picture about guys spending peaceful, wholesome time together in the outdoors — the boys, not yet men but inspiring to be such, and the greatest Man there ever was. I really wanted to get this one right and labored over it more than any other image — painting and repainting many times over. I hope it brings some joy and inspiration to you and the men in your life. — Simon Dewey

A moment of peaceful serenity
by Marilee - reviewed on March 31, 2010
Just looking at the faces of both the boys and the Savior made us wish we were sitting there with them, sharing a peaceful moment while listening to the sounds around us. How wonderful it would be to spend that kind of time with the Savior. We get that same feeling every time we look at this beautiful painting on our living room wall. It is touching to see how people are drawn to this painting when they come in our home. But the most touching is to see how our young grandchildren love it.
