So... "things" have been a lot different lately, have they not? It's still a bit surreal that we are living through a declared pandemic. It's challenging trying to keep up with the headlines from around the world. I've been thinking lately about what I can give or what I can do to help others. I've had the idea to offer free non-commercial image use of my Christian-themed artwork to my brothers and sisters in Christ who may be looking for something to insert into a church newsletter here, a website there or a social media post anywhere. Please note that the images are not of a stellar quality - I lack professional photography equipment and even if I had it I doubt I'd be able to capture high-quality images. However, they should be suitable for a small placement in online publishing. The first image is titled 'Field of Flowers'. It's an 8" x 10" painting inspired by the verses from 1 Peter 1: 24-25:
The second image I have available is titled, "The Cross". It's also sized at 8" x 10". I painted it last year in memory of the crucifixion of Christ. I chose a reference photo with a dark sky in an effort to capture Luke 23:44,
"And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour."
Sometimes when I read the Bible I get an imaginative image stuck in my mind and this was the best way I could find to paint it.
The final image I have available for use is titled "The Path" and it is an 8" x 10" acrylic painting. This painting represents the path we take to redemption, salvation and eternal life with Christ; walking with Him and letting Him lead and guide us towards a better future. It's always been my hope that others would identify with it as well.

I'm hoping that someone may find use of these images to help spread the Word to others, especially considering we are living in a time when our faith is being tested and we are relying on God to lead us through and bring us to a place of peace and safety.
