Artist's Description

I promised to share this with the “For The Love Of Jesus” group.
This painting was done in 2006. It’s nothing more than a preliminary scumble but this is how it happened and it is very special to me just the way it is (taken from the About.com forum posted in 2006).As most of you already know, my personal faith in the Lord Jesus is very strong.Yesterday, I ran down to gesso a canvas just before I had to go and pick up my children from school. I mixed some white gesso and burnt umber, painted the background, and all of a sudden the overwhelming urge came over me to paint My Saviour, My Friend. I grabbed a dry brush and scumbled this painting. It’s a self-portrait of me and my Jesus. I can’t explain it, I just do as I am told. It was all done in about 3 – 5 minutes. I decided to leave it as is, exactly the way the Lord gave it to me because He loves us so much, imperfections and all. I know this is hard for some of you to understand and I certainly do not intend to start any kind of debate. I just wanted to share with you all. I wish all of you His blessings this day.
