I was inspired to this by the reports of the faith of those in the Ukraine who are suffering so much and yet continue to have joyous faith. Some people from our church flew over to Poland with supplies for the Ukrainian people and got some first-hand accounts. It was very exciting and encouraging. I can’t do much, but I thought I could express my thoughts through my art.
I made an oil sketch of my idea and then I tried to make a larger oil painting, but it just wouldn’t go. I left it alone for a couple of weeks and then got the idea to do a drawing, instead. I felt like the Lord was guiding this whole thing, because I had no idea what to do with it, but I knew I had something to do.
This is graphite and white charcoal on a 19×25 sheet of sandy brown Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper.
If you would like prints made, it takes 24 hours after I upload it to the Fine Art America site for it to show up for purchase. Also, I can only have 24 pieces uploaded onto the site at any time, so if there is something that you want, but you do not see it, please let me know and I will take down something and upload what you want.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. — Romans 5:1 (ESV)
