Fishers of Men Commission

It has been a busy week! Thank you, Lord!
I have finished several commissions. Our good friend, Mike
asked me to paint one for his office. He wanted a stormy
sky, a stormy sea, a huge rock with a man hanging on to
it reaching out to someone in the waves and a sinking
boat in the background. Hmm!?! 

What should I use as a reference. We are in a drought. 
Our lake is at 2 percent-not 2percent low. 
That would be 98 percent low. 
So, no waves! Storm clouds have been scarce as 
hen's teeth. With the moral decline we have seen
a lot of shipwrecked lives. 
The waves behind the figure in the water
are dark and pulling. The wave in front of the figure
is light and figure on the the rock is holding 
on tightly with a strong right arm.

The precious thing about this painting is 
the model for the figure on the rock is Joe 
and the one in the water is our son, Stephen.

Jesus is our Rock! He is our Redeemer! He draws
us up from the deep! We ought also to reach out
to those who are overwhelmed and drowning in waves
of fear, depression, poverty, illness...
Make us Fishers of Men and Women!!!
