Mountains & Hills Shall Sing
36 x 60
acrylic on textured canvas
When I was a teenager, I would climb to the top of a hill and talk to God. In the fall as the trees were changing, the hills became like a symphony of colors. I always felt as if God was painting His magnificent landscape just for me.
My parents eventually sold the land, but the memories of my communion with God still bring joy to my heart.
Mountains & Hills Shall Sing is painted from those memories and the knowledge that God still speaks to my heart. Fall will always be my favorite season of the year.
So shall my word be that goes out from my
mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
“For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you
shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for the Lord, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
