The story of the Good Samaritan shows, to me, the compassion of God for the failings of mankind. We so need Him to take from us the misery of our sin, bandage our wounds, bring us to a place of healing and care for us without conditions or despising our frailty … what comfort for us to rest in! My painting, titled ‘I Am, Good’ refers to the great I AM of Exodus 3:14, who moves in absolute power in ways far above humanity. For us humans to know the I AM is the only way we can know the good. My painting expresses sin’s pain, our neglect of God until we find hope in Him. The red figure painted on top of the collage bandage represents the gracious Samaritan, who Jesus portrayed as knowing God’s mercy.
