Casting Nets by Shawn AlyeaShawn AlyeaMy motivation for painting comes from a quote from the 20th century painter, Georges Rouault, “My only objective is to paint a Christ so moving that those who see him will be converted.” 
The seed for a painting ministry began in 2007 when I experienced an angelic visit. One of the outcomes of the encounter was a strong desire, almost an obsession to portray the presence of God through painting.  I had no experience or interest in art prior to the visit. ​ I’ve discovered in the process of painting a sort of intercession occurs.  Each painting is saturated with prayer that God’s presence will pour through them to you.”                                                          Shawn Alyea


Our redemption by Shawn Alyea

"Our Redemption"  expresses the theme of Christ's sacrifice and his humanity. He will carry the sins of the world. (John 1:36) It is a simple painting in regard to line. The stary hairs show that Christ is approachable. He is not a God removed from our situation. I aimed to show Christ's sensitivity in his face, giving his holy face a skin that is almost translucent."     Shawn

The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, "He gave Himself for us. He did this by buying us with His blood and making us free from all sin." Titus 2 : 14

Casting nets by Shawn Alyea

This painting blurs sea and land. The storms of life sometimes overwhelm our lives. In these times, it becomes clear that peace can only be found in Christ’s presence.  In this picture, we see Christ casting nets in the midst of the storms of life that he uses to draw us to him. He is our only salvation. Christ invited the disciples to cast their nets too and said he would make them fishers of men. (Matthew 4:19)

The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, "The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." Luke 19 : 1

Christ in the desert by Shawn Alyea

I wanted to show the human and vulnerable side of our Lord. He is facing hardship, yet his expression is peaceful. He sits quietly in the desert, clutching his wrist to stay warm as a large moon lights the darkness around him. His clothing is plain, almost mixing in with the colours of the sand. He has a halo that is almost imperceptible and lines his body, again focusing more on his humanity rather than his divine attributes. I hope you can enter into his presence as you gaze upon Christ in the desert (Luke 4:1-2). Shawn Alyea

The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, "Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted." Hebrews 2 : 18

Our Father by Shawn Alyea

"Christ is in conversation with the Father as he gazes into Heaven. His image is upon a black background with a thin backlight of white tracing his figure. Our Father is a foundational prayer for the faith. Anything we want to pray about can be contained by this powerful prayer. Christ allows us an intimate glance into the deeply personal conversations he has with Abba, our Daddy."  Shawn Alyea

The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." Matthew 6 : 9-10

Jesus in Gethsemane by Shawn Alyea

“The inspiration came into my spirit as I was thinking about Gethsemane. I saw a flash of gold and bronze on a profile of a hooded Christ. I sketched it quickly and felt the need to add a tree both macabre and comforting as Christ reflects on what is to come (Matthew 26:38). The moon boils. The tree is partially stripped of its bark to predict the cross to come. The branches reach to our Lord in an embrace as if to comfort, and bloom with life in his presence. The picture combines the horror of crucifixion, the joy of resurrection, and the glory of the promised bride.”   Shawn Alyea

The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, "“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”  Luke 22 : 42
