The Prodigal Son

This painting is by one of my favorite artist - Liz Lemon Swindle. If you've been to my house you know that I love art and have seen one of her other paintings - Hold On Tight, which is Jesus giving a piggy-back ride to a child. Besides the subject matter what I love about her artwork is her ability to portray, capture, and conjure emotions. I had big tears well up in my eyes when I saw this picture and thought about how it represents God's acceptance of me.
