Faith Paintings

Some people say that all the great Christian paintings have been painted, and that there is nothing new to say. But as a Christian, I must add my voice. I, too, am a witness; I have a testimony to share. So do we all, if we profess a faith. I believe in Christ, and as I read and reread the stories of Jesus of Nazareth recorded in Christian scripture, something new always unfolds, even if it is new only to me and to my learning. I am interested most in painting those themes which have not previously been painted to my satisfaction, but there are also classic themes I wish to echo— to add my voice.

Much ado is often made about the historicity of Biblical paintings: did He really look like that? Did they have that kind of dinnerware? Shouldn’t their heads be covered? These are worthy questions, but they are of secondary importance. The story is the most important thing: the recognition, the lesson, the moral; the declaration of divine truth.

These paintings are my declaration of faith.
