Medium : Pen and Inksize : 11’’ x 15’’ Bristol BoardDate : 1993This study of a piano was done for a woman who was a missionary with her husband. They served in a Christian ministry that reached out to military personal and their families, through the teaching of the Holy Bible and showing hospitality. They have been missionaries most of their lives. I met them while i was a summer missionary the year I was in college. I went back two more summer to help , and they became my friends. The woman is a gifted piano player, so I was asked if i could do an illustration of her piano for her. This couple have inspired me through their dedication of using their lives to serve God through serving others, that many may know God through the teaching, and living out the Word before others.

  • Amber,

    Thank you for featuring this rendering of this Piano. You know this rendering has not been see in about 15 or more years. It is because I didn’t own a computer until about a year ago. But God has given me a job were I got internet services at half price, and I was given a computer for free. So I believe I has ordained me to spread His word to the world by using my artistic talent, and the internet. I can’t what to get to heaven and find out how He has used this seed of faith, how big a harvest it will produce.

    Jim Hall took the words right out of my comment box, this is just a wonderful piece. So much more depth and detail then a casual look at a real piano.
    Well done

    I guess having a real model really make a difference in 0ne’s art.
