|new print, Destiny|
Whenever I paint a mountain in a scene, I typically imagine myself on a trail coming towards it . . . as if I'm being called to it. Mountains have a deeper meaning for me than just mighty forces of nature. They are a representation of God and His mighty nature. I believe that God is all around us, but there's something about being on a mountaintop that does make me feel closer to Him. And I don't think it's by coincidence that God reveals Himself and His plan for His people on mountains. It was on a mountain, after all, where God tested Abraham, spoke to Moses, and where Jesus was transfigured.

I'm happy that this painting has come along rather smoothly. I think I'll continue with the ocean theme with the next wood panel piece.
Starting in April, my art will be on display in Grand Central Bakery on Hawthorne. So this new painting will be part of the show.
