|"THE GOOD SHEPHERD"
24" x 24"
In a small town in central Kansas stands a wonderful old Presbyterian church
which houses a stained glass window of Jesus and his lambs. Years ago, the
husband of one of the Canvas by Canvas artists grew up in the shadow of
this place of worship, and memories of Christmas and Easter services remain
A recent trip back to Kansas afforded the opportunity to photograph the
stained glass window with the intention that the group would paint it. The
finished piece contains 10 canvases, each painted in acrylic by a different
artist. It has been custom framed and measures 26” x 26” framed. It
comes wired ready to hang and includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by
the participating artists of Canvas by Canvas.
In Luke 15:4-7, Jesus tells the parable of the lost sheep and how a good shepherd
will leave his other 99 animals to go and search for one lost lamb. When he finds
the sheep he asks his friends to rejoice with him, for the lost has been found! A
parallel is drawn between the lost sheep and the sinner who comes to repentance,
with great joy in heaven. This painting of the Good Shepherd illustrates the love
our Savior has for us, and His grace in the forgiveness of our sins.
