“Will you also go away?,” Jesus asked his disciples, on the day many walked away from him and his message.

    I see a questioning face–you captured the moment beautifully.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment, Christie. Yes, I always look for that certain gaze in the face and sometimes the paint shows it! May He bless you!

    I love all your paintings however, in the portraits of Jesus his features are all white Europeans. As I read my Bible I find that he looked more like the Jewish Syrian, Pakistanis people do today.

      Yes, thank you, Loretta. Recently, I have just sold my last “Palestinian looking” Jesus, and so I have been working toward buiding up a collection of images that are either “white European looking” and/or Israeli Mid-Eastern. It just takes a while to build up my stock again since each one takes a lot of time. My idea is really to do many kinds of faces of the Lord that many various people can relate to. The sky is the limit! I appreciate your looking!
