Dry & Thirsty Land detail

A series of events lead to this commissioned work for an Australian visitor to New Zealand. The title "Dry & Thirsty Land" references
Psalm 63:1...
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

This scripture was her "Life Verse". I did not find this out until later, when she was back in Sydney with the piece.

The only brief for the commission was that I prayerfully considered the work.

I also wanted to show you my website I'm an artist living in Texas and I do custom Christian paintings for the good of His kingdom. Drop me a line and let me know what you think.
