|"During my career as
a professional artist I have had many challenges and opportunities to
express very diverse images and emotions. It is through my biblical art
that I receive the greatest blessing as others are blessed. I seek to
create Bible-based images that not only have aesthetic appeal in
subject, color, composition, light and mood but also even more
importantly depict scriptural lessons. A picture is worth a thousand
words and combined with the Word of God it is that much more
effective." - Gary Lessord
The painting "Creative Splendor" centers on a portrait of the good shepherd Jesus Christ (Psalm 23) as the light and life of all creation. The many aspects of creation all speak to the glory, truth and love of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
The design and subject matter depict a segment of the Lord's magnificent creative splendor. The eagle, ox, dove, lion and lamb all have symbolic importance in scripture and are included to illustrate attributes of Christ.
A parallel of these attributes is found in the Old Testament in the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel and in the New Testament in Revelation chapter four. There are four living creatures whose appearances exhibit the same portrait of character.
"I experienced the Lord's direction and leading as I painted "Creative Splendor" through numerous other scriptures from Genesis to Revelation." - Gary Lessord
"In the beginning, O Lord you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands." Hebrews 1:10
