Pastor Isaac



I had the privelege of doing the portrait of Pastor Isaac.  He has a church in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I wanted to portray him as a spiritual man with symbolic representation of the “light of the gospel.”  I had him next to a sheer curtain which diffused the light on his robes and the opened Bible.  I tried to give a delicate look to the pattern of the curtains, and wanted to give a shiny look to the gold sash on the robe.  Hopefully I presented him and his message in a simple, yet sacred manner.

I love this portrait. I think you did a great job of portraying what is important to him. Isn’t this hanging in their church?

What a magnificent painting! It looks like the heavens have opened and are shining down on him. This is the perfect use of light!
