I feel that a visual artist should not talk too much about his work because a good painting should speak in purely visual terms through form, colour and tone and should not need to be interpreted or explained. My paintings are not concerned with the surface appearance of people or things but try to express something of the fundamental spiritual reality behind this surface appearance. I try to express in visible form the oneness and unity of this invisible power binding all things into one whole. I do not illustrate Bible stories literally, as I am not interested in the places or people but try to express what I feel is the deeper significance of each story for every individual throughout all time.
The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters." Psalm 23: 1-2
Philippians Chap 4: 19. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in Glory by Jesus Christ. Matthew Chap 11: 28. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
This verse appears on the back of the greetings card. "The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee." Deuteronomy 33: 27
Romans Chap 8: 35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Matthew Chap 24: 6,7. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled….. For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famine, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Matthew Chap 11: 28. Come unto me , all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Footprints by Margaret Fishback Powers. My precious, precious child. I love you and I would never, never leave you during your times of trials and suffering. When you see only one set of footprints it was then that I carried you.
