The Sea of Galilee (100% of profits to charity)
Did you know the Middle East has lush countrysides full of life?
This oil painting was based off a picture taken by a friend who is in the Middle East ministering to Syrian refugees. The view is what you would see were you standing in Jordan looking west into Israel as the sun sets. Syria is on the far right, and the Sea of Galilee in Israel is in the background of the painting reflecting the sun.
We had the idea of creating a piece of art that depicts the very land in which he is serving and selling archival canvas reproductions in order to raise awareness, engagement, and funds for his mission in the Middle East, and this is the result! Our hope is that whenever you see it on your wall, you will remember the purpose and mission that your purchase supported and pray for its advancement. 100% OF PROFITS WILL BE DONATED TO HIS CAUSE.
I cannot share my friend's name publicly because of the threat it would pose to his family and him, but many of you know him or know of him. This is a quote he provided about his mission:
"Our work is loving Syrians through tangible relief projects and through introducing them to Jesus. We long to see reproducing, gospel-centered, and Syrian-led churches among Syrian Muslim peoples."
The painting is available on two sizes of canvas, both unframed:
- 16" x 20" stretched on 3/4" thick wooden bars
- 18" x 24" stretched on 1.5" thick wooden bars
Both can be hung unframed, although the 1.5" thick option has a more commanding presence on a wall. If you are interested in a larger size, please contact me directly.
I just finished having the painting scanned, so I don't have any pictures of the actual canvas prints yet, but will add some as soon as I receive one and can photograph it. These reproductions are extremely high quality and virtually indistinguishable from an original oil painting. You can look at my collegiate art collection to get a sense for the quality of the prints.
