The Sower by Annie Henrie Nader
About this Image:
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit. - Matthew 13:23
Christ taught the Parable of the Sower to His disciples to help them understand how to nourish their faith. This painting includes the symbols Christ used to teach them: the stony ground, the fowls waiting to eat the seed, thorns invading the field, and the good ground bearing forth healthy wheat. Storm clouds in the distance may nourish or uproot the seeds, as do further trials to our faith. The fields stretch on endlessly, representing the eternal nature of the work of the Lord. The Lord holds his hand open as an invitation to grow stronger in faith.
About the Artist:
ANNIE HENRIE NADER knew she wanted to be an artist at an early age. She has early memories of painting with her father, a professional artist. Annie graduated from Brigham Young University with a BFA in Illustration. As part of her education, she was able to study abroad in England and Italy. She also served as a full-time missionary in southern England. These experiences, along with recently having become a mother, have inspired much of her art style and religious subject matter.
