I am a big believer in the "You are there" principal promoted by my theologian friend Dr. Richard Davidson. The idea being that you can more thoroughly understand and enjoy the study of History if you allow your imagination to go back to that time, to see the sights, hear the sounds, even smell the smells, as if you are really there.
I have applied this principal to help create these scenes from the Biblical record. Maybe by immersing my own imagination into the sights sounds and smells of these moments, those who view these paintings can also be drawn into experiencing a bit of history in a new and meaningful way.
