My friend, Venson asked if I could paint his vision.
He was listening to "Come Away" by Jesus Culture
and could see Jesus sitting on the edge of a cliff-the highest
point in Colorado City. He could envision Jesus
extending his hands and asking the people
of that city to "Come away with me".
This city has had a lot of violence and tragedy. Last year
it was in the national news. Hailey Dunn went missing
and still has not been found. As I painted this, I could feel
His heart as He calls to His beloved creation.
There are buildings where there is no light at all, some
have dark windows and only 1 or 2 lights, and some
have lights that are shining brightly.
This is 16"x20" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas.
"...declare the praises of Him who has called you out
of darkness into His wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9
One of my FAVORITE scriptures!!!
