I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT ONE OF MY MOST POPULAR AND INSPIRATIONAL PAINTINGS (& personal favorite of mine) IS NOW AVAILABLE AS A PRINT! THE ORIGINAL, "JESUS IS IN YOUR BOAT," WAS A COMMISSIONED PIECE FOR A LOCAL CHURCH ELDER, AND HAS BEEN VIEWED VERY FAVORABLY BY MANY WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED TRYING TIMES DURING THE ONGOING PANDEMIC, BUT FOUND STRENGTH IN SPIRITUAL COMFORT. I'M EXTREMELY PROUD THAT MY PAINTING WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE THAT POSITIVE FEELING ONE GETS FROM KEEPING THE FAITH.
THE PRINT OF "JESUS IS IN YOUR BOAT"/'TRUST JESUS" IS AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING AND TO ORDER AT THE BEAUTIFUL RELIGIOUS ART SITE:
