Mixed Media ( Acrylic and paper) on gallery wrap canvas.  ( A print is also available of this painting). 

This painting is called “The Seven” and it’s like “The Eight” painting I️ made last year.
Since Advent of 2015, I have thought about "The Four" ( Jesus' grandmother's- Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba) over and over again. I've painted them many times during the past two years and each time it's a gift to paint because this painting and story has grown into something I treasure deeply. As each brush stroke goes on the canvas, I have thought of each woman and her life and the sorrows she carried yet the faith she carried as well. And these women have become my friends. 
I think of heaven and meeting them and giving them a hug and thanking them for their stories because their lives have made an impact on mine and so many. Their lives show grace... that beautiful Jesus Grace. .
.

I have heard from many of you these past two years and some have said, "If God chose these four women to be grandmothers of Jesus, then maybe God could use me- despite my past, my weary heart, my failings and sufferings." And so truly, we are all in this together. 
And I wanted to paint the women who have gone before us and they are not the sparkly, polished, perfect women... but they belong in the most amazing lineage of all time and they are Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba and they are standing together with us as daughters and mothers and teachers and artists and doctors and songwriters and film editors and nurses and designers and ministers and writers and the list goes on. .
.
So you can place yourself in this row and give yourself a crown because you .
Belong to God and he hears you .
He sees you.
.
He knows you so well and deeply loves you no matter what. .
Come as you are. 
God is here with all grace and all love.😊✨💕
