The book of Revelations 7:17 declares: “For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”
The fountain in the background is a reminder of those living waters and is based on an earlier painting entitled Be Not Afraid. In that image Jesus is shown helping two small children across a turbulent stream, leading and even carrying them to the safety of the other...
"From an early age I have always been fascinated by paintings that create mood, emotion and atmosphere; especially those paintings that lift me and transport me to some far off place. These are the elements I strive to create in my paintings.

My hope is that in these images you will find something familiar, something which will resonate and remind you of what is important in your own life."
