Sower (December 2009)
Scripture: Matthew13:1-23 / Mark 4:1-20/ Luke 8:1-15
20” x 20”
While reading the popular parable about the sower, I could not get the farming reference out of my head. I didn’t want to make the painting quite so literal, so I chose to draw images from the parable in oil pastel behind the final painting. If you look closely in the center top of the painting you will see a hand which casts seed. The plant images round out the bottom of the painting. I deliberately chose the green shades in order to reiterate this idea of planting.
