This was my first church painting. It was painted in 20 minutes as quickly as I could paint. It was also one of the first pieces I sold at a local gallery in Carson City. I am grateful to Tommy for purchasing it, because, Tommy is a really neat guy. He used to be a teacher in Carson City, and many ex-students still refer to him as “Mr. T.”, of course when they do: I keep expecting him to growl or something – but he never does that.
