Mealtime Prayer


Rachel Harvey ordered this khaki 16x20 canvas with white lettering for her dining room. As I was painting it, I kept thinking about how lucky we are to have an abundance of food. My worry is always that I've eaten too much, never not enough. How would that feel? Thank you, Lord, for providing food and for giving me the security of not knowing what real hunger is like.



I did some tone-on-tone stenciling for the background. In some areas it it fairly dark and in others barely visible. My goal was to give it an antique or worn feel without taking away from the words.

Thank you! 16x20's are usually $45.00. If you order before the 14th, they are $5.00 off:)! Whoopee!
