Kissing the Face of God
by Morgan Weistling

The difference between a magnificent work of art and an illustration lies in the artist’s passion for the subject at hand. Such is the case with the power of Morgan Weistling’s Christian art.

 We are excited to offer, along with Kissing the Face of God, three more faith-based paintings by Weistling for the first time as Fine Art Open Edition Canvases. These affordably priced editions can hang separately or together in a series that will provide encouragement, motivation, reflection and faith in any location in your home.

“This painting was inspired by the phrase ‘kissing the face of God,’ which I heard in a song many years ago,” said the artist. “I immediately thought of a composition with Mary and baby Jesus and how Mary had the privilege to hold God in the flesh in her arms. She cuddled and kissed him just as all mothers do with their babies. God chose to send his Son into this world in this amazing way—in pure humility.”

"Kissing the Face of God" is one of Morgan Weistling’s iconic images, a portrait of light and love with universal appeal. This Greenwich Workshop Fine Art open edition canvas is available in two sizes so you can find that special place in your home to enjoy it.

Thy Will Be Done
by Morgan Weistling

“This painting is a portrait of prayer,” says artist Morgan Weistling, “and its title comes from that moment in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matt 26:39), hours before his crucifixion. 

“I was inspired to paint this by the number of times the Bible refers to Christ going off alone to pray to his Father, for example in Luke 5:16: ‘But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.’

“I wanted the viewer to imagine how Jesus would look if you were to come upon him in a private moment of prayer. The painting emphasizes his strong carpenter’s hands, clasped in prayer, representing his communion with the Father.  As I painted it I also thought about the importance of praying not only in times of need but often, and thoughtfully, just as Christ did.”

Reflection of God
by Morgan Weistling

“Colossians 1:15-20 speaks of Christ’s supremacy and of his being the image of the invisible God. Studying this passage brought the scene of Jesus’ baptism to my mind,” says artist Morgan Weistling.

“I chose to depict a quiet moment while Jesus was in the Jordan River to be baptized by John. I wanted to focus on Christ alone, looking to his Father in heaven, as he fulfilled God’s promise to send a Savior. His reflection in the water extends forward, reaching out to us, the viewers, as does Christ himself with his immeasurable gift of salvation. My prayer is that this painting will not only proclaim the deity of Christ but will encourage the viewer to answer the question that Jesus asks all of us: ‘Who do you say I am?’ (Matt. 16:15).”

The Promise
by Morgan Weistling

The disciples Matthew (Chapter 9) and Mark (Chapter 5) both have accounts of Jarius, leader of a synagogue, who pleaded with Jesus to heal his dying daughter. Jesus agreed to see her but before they reached the house, they received word that the girl had died. Jesus told her father not to be afraid, but to believe.

When they reached the house, Jesus asked everyone to leave except His disciples Peter, James and John and the child's parents. Then He took the girl's hand and commanded her to get up. The 12-year-old girl rose and walked around the room. Everyone was astonished, but Jesus told them to give her something to eat and not to tell anyone.

"I chose to depict that moment when the little girl had been given her life back by Jesus,” says the artist. “I imagined the closeness she must have felt for Him. This painting illustrates a real event in time, and it is also symbolic of the life Jesus offers everyone. As a Christian, it is easy to understand the girl’s gratitude because we have all been given life. I am reminded of Jesus' offer to all in John, Chapter 11:  'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?' ”
