Artist's Description

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.” Matthew 10:29.

So much of the Lord’s love and compassion comes through in this quote. The time of his first coming was characterized by extreme financial difficulty for the common people of Israel. Not only were they burdened by the taxes imposed by the Roman Empire, but they were also required to pay into the Temple Treasury. Neither of these requirements could be avoided without extreme physical penalty on the one hand, and threatened extreme spiritual penalty on the other. Jesus’ message may have been comforting, but many must have had difficulty accepting it – as many do today.

These are paintings of a young sparrow that I reared for a little time after it fell from the nest. An unforgettable relationship.

Acrylic on board.
