“Pray like it all depends on God,
then when you are done,
go work like it all depends on you”
Some of my paintings are now available as postcards and prints from http://www.fineartamerica.com/profiles/david-clode.html
Samson painting in charcoal, pastel and acrylic on watercolour paper, by David Clode.
Samson messes up so often, and ends up being blinded and enslaved by his enemies, the Philistines. But in his last defiant act, he prays intensely to God, and martyrs himself in order to kill huge numbers of his enemies.
“The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much”
David painting in charcoal, white pastel pencil, on pastel paper, by David Clode. In my sketchy tribute to Michelangelo’s brilliant “David” sculpture, I have tried to make David a little less pretty, with more focussed aggression.
Another version of David.
“…it may be that the LORD will work for us:
for there is no restraint to the LORD to save by many or by few”
1 Sam. 14:6.
“The greatest works are done by the ones.
The hundreds do not often do much, the companies never;
it is the units, the single individuals,
that are the power and the might”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
“When in doubt, do the courageous things”
“Island girl”. Pastel on pastel paper. I have done quite a few portraits. This is one of my favourites, because it captures not just a likeness, but a suggestion of her personality.
“Be strong and of good courage”
