Heading for a Better Country

Compared to eternity, our grief is only a moment in time. The saddest heart can be assured that “the things that are seen are transient, but things that are unseen are eternal.” Keep scanning your eyes for heaven’s horizon because you’ll be reunited with loved ones someday soon.

Silent Witness Art Print
Imagine quietly walking through a moonlit, snowy woods, and coming upon a buck deer and his doe. He raises his head and you stand motionless and breathless with excitement. I painted this gouache-and-watercolor rendering in 1992, hoping the viewer would experience that delightful moment of surprise. Rather than paint the deer in detail, I rendered their ‘attitude’ with just a few strokes. “Silent Witness” is a quiet, yet powerful expression of Psalm 33:8, “Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.” Truly, the moment captured in this painting is a silent witness of the beauty of God in all of creation… even the deer.
