Art: If God so Cares for Flowers... by Artist Joseph J. Callahan


"And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?" Luke 12:28


After painting Ravens based off Luke 12:24, I knew I had to do one with flowers to pair with 12:24's sister verse, 12:28. 

 

I know earlier the chapter refers to lilies, but for some reason, whenever I read this chapter I picture daisy's, so when I found these dried, pressed flowers,  I knew it was time to paint.I LOVE the bright orange daisy!!

 

In this section of Luke (12:22-34), he teaches us how our worries distract us from out true purpose, and how, through faith, God will provide all our needs.  It is only through faith, and God's grace, that we can reach for, and achieve our true potential.


This painting is mixed media with the primary media being acrylic paint, and REAL flowers, dried and pressed.  The leaf is a real leaf dipped in metal. The verse (Luke 12:28) is stamped on gessoed tissue paper. The flowers are embedded into the acrylic paint and the whole painting is coated in a clear, high gloss acrylic gel to seal everything in place, add a professional shine, and level the top surface of the painting.
