LOST Sawyer's Prayer Acrylic Painting of James 'Sawyer" Ford by 

A few years ago I was commissioned to create a painting for an art exhibit for my church. Since the Television Show LOST was a huge phenomenon at the time, I painted a picture of the character, Sawyer, sitting on the wing of the damaged plane, praying. I only had about three weeks to paint this painting but it literally travelled the world and people from California, Australia and other parts of the US saw this painting and amazingly, were inspired and spoken to by it.

I have been painting since I was 12 years old and enjoy bringing ideas to life. Art is my passion as well as photography and 3D Animation. I have won first and second place awards in local shows and just enjoy creating something to hopefully bring a smile to someone’s face.

    Nice incorporation, maybe had they brought God into the middle, they wouldn’t have been ‘lost’ in the first place?
