All of these gracious interventions in the Old and New Testament, pointed to the eternal rescue by Jesus Christ himself on the Cross. Through His agonizing and sacrificial death, we are fully bought and fully paid for. Any man, woman or child who humbles himself and repents of sin, may freely come to our Blessed Redeemer, Mighty Counselor and Prince of Peace. His hand waits for you to secure your eternal salvation!
"Rescued" is a powerful depiction of the nail scarred hand of Jesus holding onto all who will come freely to him at the foot of the cross. On the cross, Jesus, the Son of God, permanently defeated death when He rose again. In doing so, he our place at the throne of God if we come Him and he will never let us Go.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. (John 10:28)
Having been a carpenter most of my life, I am still humbled by the incredible gift of creating art I discovered in my early 30's. When I first picked up a pencil for something other than a carpenter's tool, it felt like I was stepping through the looking glass. An excitement and purpose poured from my fingers as I tried various mediums. Then the moment came which defined who I am today. I touched clay. Having never been exposed to the transforming power of creating art, I knew immediately that this was a gift from the Creator Himself and I determined to be a good steward of the gift. From that time, my passion has been to find the inspiration behind every sculpture I create and to convey it in lasting bronze. Getting to be the storyteller of heroic and beloved people, ideas, visions, stories or events in history has been the greatest privilege of my life. I have created sculptures of both modern and historical public figures from all walks of life - military, civil, educational, faith-based, family, business and the arts. Leaving a legacy in bronze that will outlive any of us is both an astonishing privilege and a sacred trust in making sure that the stories or ideas are told accurately and with excellence.
