Abide With Me by Simon Dewey
About this Image:
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me and ye shall find rest unto your souls. - Matthew 11:28 - 30
In this painting I wanted to depict the Savior with open arms, welcoming and inviting us to come unto Him, the Prince of Peace. My intention was to create an expression of His softness, forgiveness, and understanding; for He knows us and seeks after us that we may find rest and peace in Him. I can imagine that in such an instance all other details and personal insecurities will fade away. Because of this I intentionally painted Him in white with a soft white background with no other details to distract us from Him. If we will follow Him and learn of Him we will truly find ourselves in His rest.
