In a Cold Dark Cell

Jesus- King in Exile

 This morning, around 5:30 while still    half asleep, but awake enough to still hear my kitty , Bonnie, crying downstairs (she does that a lot in the early mornings because she hates being the only one awake in the house…lol)        Well when she meowed, I faintly heard her and the first thing that came to mind was how she sounded like a little boy all alone in a prison cell – cold, alone and weeping.

THEN,  I began thinking of Jesus all alone in His holding cell prison cell they pushed Him in after His arrest to await His mock trial some hours later.     I realized our Lord , as the Son of Man, truly did feel alone, abandoned, hurt, afflicted..   and He felt vulnerable like  a young boy shoved in a stone cell — separated from all who loved Him and exposed to those who hated Him.. many who were infested…

John The Baptist


This is John the Baptist who is the cousin of Jesus. He is depicted in his camel hair as described in Matthew 3 verse 4. But the Lord also got me to paint his under garment green. ….John’s mother is Elizabeth, a relative of Mother Mary from Luke 1 verse 18. …. The scenery is also accurate as it portrays the mountains near the Jordan where John baptised. John the Baptist, I think, will be the best man at the Wedding in Heaven.

Let The Children Come Unto Me


This painting is based on Matthew 19 verses 13-15. This was started ahead of a teaching from the Lord about the brides being prepared with the innocence of children before entering heaven. This was a struggle due to demonic interference especially with Christ’s image, so it was a painting salvaged by the Son and the Father.

The boy in Christ’s lap is himself as a young boy. Originally he asked for him to be clothed in yellow but I didn’t like the result so we agreed on blue. He said he had both coloured clothes as a child when he was slightly younger than I have depicted. Peter is the central figure in his favourite green and with blue eyes too, the colours of a man of the seas. His image is very close to what he looks like. Hauntingly the man to his left is Judas Iscariot, who wore red, yes red. Next to him is John the Devine. I am the boy in light blue and also the black sheep. The young girl is my sister. The older girl is a follower.

The Woman Caught In Adultery


This took many sittings. It is based on John 8. The Pharisees and scribes are about to stone to death the woman (adulteress) and are testing Jesus concerning the law of Moses. ….what did he write in the dust on the ground in front of them? John 8 does not say, but that may be because it got rubbed out. The Lord revealed it was Leviticus 20 verse 10. This is painted as the text would have been in Hebrew and facing them, which is why they look shame faced. This brilliant retort showed them that they had erred in law, because the male adulterer is nowhere to be found in John 8. Then the final knockout punch was the legendary line “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. ”

The Crucifixion -John 19


This painting was a trial and painting crucifixion in the sense of me being Simon the Cyrene. Notice that the unrepentant criminal is placed on the side where the skull of Golgotha (death and hell) is and the saved criminal is on the side where the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea also pictured is, which represents resurrection and life. The Father was insistent on the fine detail, especially the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments tablets in Hebrew. See how the rock is rent or split by earthquake to allow his blood to flow down and for some to drip onto the mercy seat. The solar eclipse and blood red moon I am convinced happened too so I painted them both. There were numerous times I said “it is finished” but it was not.

….The Lord took over my fine detail paint brush and my hand and eyes for his face looking down at his mother Mary. Also at the foot of the cross is John the Devine, Mary Magdalene and Mary wife of Clopas. That would have been the point where he said the lines from John 19 verses 26-27:   “When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.”

Crown of Daisies



“…You know I was reminded of something special the Lord had done about six weeks ago. Hearing the story of Faustina reminded me of it. There is a beautiful, peaceful walking path that is mostly covered by large trees on both sides that meanders along a local golf course. I walked this one day and had stopped in a spot where no one was, reflecting…thinking of some of my life problems and started to cry. As the tears flowed, I looked up in one of the trees off of the path and about six feet in the air was not a crown of thorns, but a crown of woven daisies hanging from a tree branch. I still have a pic of it on my phone. 💕💕
