Parables


One of my favorite things about reading the scriptures are the parables, allegories and imagery that they have. They excite me a lot. They are such a visual story to me and the levels of depth that they can take on.

A few weeks ago I taught a lesson on Matthew 13 - the Parable of the Sower. It was such a fun lesson to teach and ever since then I've had this desire to just play around and see what kind of visual images I could come up with for these parables and allegories I love so much.

So last night to relax I decided I was going to play around for me and work on a series of 4 images for the 4 types of ground the seed or word of God landed on. I was only able to get 2 done before I forced myself to pull away from the computer so I could get some sleep. (Only to be woken up 4 more times in the night by kids.)
It was so enjoyable though that I'm dying to finish up the other two.

Oh my goodness! You are a wonderful artist! I would love to have these to frame! I can't wait to see the other two! I love parables too, they have so many layers to them, I love when the Lord shines His light on something I have never seen in them before, even after reading them oodles of times! What a blessing! :D
