"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

  1. Wow, beautiful; thank you for posting.

  2. Beautiful, Terry. Thanks for sharing

  3. Thanks Elena, Diane and Jeanette - I always second guess myself about my work and I'm hesitant to post everything I do. I promised a couple of people that I would post these asap for them to evaluate.

  4. Fine work. I have always admired the gifted eye of one who sees beyond what is before him and then captures such beauty in a painting or a drawing.

    You give glory to God.


  5. Wow! You have done a beautiful job! The Holy Spirit shines through these paintings... Matt Talbot is especially strong and powerful. May God grant special graces to those in need who will look on them. You have been a docile instrument in His hands, Terry; what every artist should be. God bless you.

  6. thanks for painting this. I like the way the characters seem to look at you in the eye. It's powerfull.
