When I started this painting, I believed that Gethsemane was about the suffering of Christ. About the agony so intense that He trembled because of pain and bled from every pore.

We live in a world of rapid advancement that leaves in its wake moral confusion and uncertainty. When I look at the challenges of raising children today I cannot help but wonder, “When will He come?” The Savior’s disciples asked Him this very question as He sat on the Mount of Olives days before His […]
