"Eden's Dream"

Many of my paintings are inspired from the same thoughts of perspective. In my pen and ink drawing of "Africa", the thought of what a continent would say if she could speak was the inspiration. In "Eden's Dream" the same thought intrigued me. Eden, the perfect garden created for man, was emptied because of man's rebellion. A perfect garden, a perfect home left empty . . . "Eden's Dream" was created and she dreams man living, praising and worshiping within her garden.

“Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there He put the man He had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground – trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food.”

Genesis 2:8-9a
