This piece was done for a local Christian charity's October fund raising luncheon. The theme is Living Water, the encounter of the Samaratin woman with Jesus at the community well. The story of the painting is my encounter with Jesus at my very dry well at a time in my life when all joy of living was gone and colors were pretty much non-existant, neutralized to gray. Jesus restored my soul at my easel. Love, joy and peace returned while painting my step-son's puppy. I could finally breath again after holding my breath for almost 7 years. Everything changed from that point on. I am so thankful to my Savior for His Mercy and persistent pursuit of me. He is truly the Good Shepherd of lost sheep.
