God's glory is revealed all around us, if we have eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to understand.

A Father's Covering, oil, 20 x 16
There is alot of symbolism in this painting. Scripture tells us that the father is the covering over his household, just as God is the covering over His children. As the father in this painting lifts and carries his child upon his strong shoulders, he walks underneath the tree covering, representing his covering by God as he covers his child. He walks toward the covering and against the path of the world. The only way God can cover his children is if we don't follow the ways of the world, but the ways of God. There's no safer place to be.
I am the owner of Art & Soul Gallery in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania. My works and 35 other local area artists works are exhibited and available for sale at the gallery. Contact the gallery at 717-761-1270. We are located on the second floor of the West Shore Farmer's Market. Please visit and consider the beautiful original works by Central Pennsylvania artists.
After a career in business, I couldn't shake a lifelong desire to create art. In 2003 I began this wonderful journey of painting and sculpting. There is so much to learn and always new ways to improve and grow as an artist. In my small way, I hope to show the glory of God all around us.
