Personal Healer (February 2012)
Scripture: Mark 7:31-37
16” x 16”
When God healed people, He touched them physically. He made it a point to be intimately involved in their space. In this can he put His fingers in the ears of the deaf and spit on his hand and touched the tongue of a mute. With authority and compassion He healed the people. This passage shows Him then telling the ones healed to tell no one. I tried to represent this by placing the images of an ear and mouth in the center of the painting to show the healing was done privately. The lines then coming from the center to the edges serve to show that the act wasn’t kept a secret but shared and spread to others.
