He Loves Us Inspite Of Ourselves


I'm always faced on a daily basis, as many artists are, with an inner struggle about whether to create from the heart or according to industry trends. Since I make most of my living selling decorative prints, it has become quite the dilemma for me.

I know in my heart what God wants from me. He wants me to produce work for His glory and He makes it known to me quite clearly through the sales of my spiritual artworks and kind letters from wonderful people all over the world who have been touched in some way or another through my work. I know that's not me, that's Him.

Often, I veer off the path and take my own direction...I'm human, that's just what we do but it is comforting to know that He is with us always, never leaving nor forsaking us as we go through this journey.

This piece speaks to that.

The signed original is 16 X 16 inches on stretched canvas $245. It is also available in print. If interested, please visit: He Loves Us Inspite Of Ourselves at Imagekind
