In the latest publication of Gateway Magazine, I was selected to feature an artwork for their inside cover of the September edition! They chose the piece, "Freedom Abounds," which was an original art work done for a cover of a book. Click here to view Gateway Magazine September Issue.

Below is the story that goes with the painting.
Cover Art of Galatians Book
Original Oil on Canvas
What a true delight it has been to render Galatians as an oil painting. Along the way we chose to portray a work that is abstract in nature. It leaves room for you to contemplate what you see, feel and gain from the piece. The most beautiful part is that each person will see something different.
I hope to evoke emotions of peace with this artwork, the peace that we have in Christ, knowing that we have freedom in him and through him. May the colors portrayed burst with life and dance across the canvas with joy. I pray it is a statement piece about coming out of darkness into new light.
If you look closely, you will see little white impressions of birds being set free, soaring across the sky of color. They are released into infinite opportunities, lifting upward to boundless joy. I see them living a life of uninhibited freedom.
As his words unfold in this study, I pray his glorious love fills our minds and hearts with light. May the door to our cage open so we can lift our wings to a place where freedom abounds.
