In my artwork, Jesus is depicted as descending onto earth riding on a cloud. He is triumphantly returning to earth to judge the living and the dead. There is colour pencil blending involved in my artwork as well as paint used. I thought of this because I read in the Bible that it is prophesied that He will one day return. My painting which shows His return thus gives hope to all Christians around the world that their Saviour has come to redeem them.
This painting is a seascape with a boat going on a journey. I turn 55 years old this year. As I continue on in my life’s journey (symbolized by the boat), I know that there will be ups and downs (symbolized by the waves). However, I (outline of the lady in the sail) must always lean against the Cross (the mast), trusting that the Lord Jesus is my Shalom Navigator who goes before me and will be beside me. I have always been a type A person, wanting to be in control. I must, instead, completely place my hope and trust in Jesus.
I like to draw things that move – e.g. trucks, cars and ships. My artwork shows a very big ark with Noah’s family and animals in it. I imagined the ark to have a crane to carry cargo on it. God kept Noah’s family and every pair of creature alive in the ark according to His promise. The dove found no land to stand on, so it returned to the ark.
