Desert Series: 2021-2022

“Jesus answered [the devil], “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Matthew 4:4 (The Temptation of Jesus in the Judean Desert)

My Desert Series conveys the experience of walking with God through the “desert” and learning to live by His Word through trials and temptations. These 12 pieces reflect my spiritual journey through the “deserts” of life. Each piece expresses a different aspect of the “desert” experience and includes a Hebrew word that relates to the title of each painting. All paintings are watercolor on paper with gold paint.

“Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.

Deuteronomy 8:2‭-‬3 (Emphasis added)
