Story Behind the Art
When I paint I always start with the eyes, because they are the soul of each painting. Each day as I came in to the studio I had an overwhelming feeling that He was looking at me. Some days I did not feel comf011able looking into his eyes and avoided them, knowing I could do more or be more than I was. Other days I felt comfortable around Him and drew great strength in looking into His eyes.
As the painting neared completion I started showing it to others and I was amazed to find that they had the same reaction as I did. Some people did not want to look into His eyes, others smiled, and some cried. It was then I realized that He was not only looking for me, but that he was looking for all of us .
I remembered His words, "What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine, and go after that which is lost?" - Luke 15 :4. We are each lost in our own way and the Good Shepherd never stops seeking after us until He has found us and can'ied us home.
