Justice for All by Rod Chase
From the Artist:
In preparing to paint this piece, the artist traveled to Washington, D. C., and visited the Supreme Court both in the morning and at twilight to study the detailing in the structure, the color of the building and its surroundings and to take detailed photographs of the area. Chase uses acrylics on canvas, often backing the canvas with a board. Unlike most artists who block in color and rework the painting time after time, Chase completes each section of the painting before moving on to the next. Although he works almost exclusively from photographs, he takes artistic license by moving trees, branches or lights to enhance the composition as a whole. The snow in the foreground of this painting is simply amazing - crunchy and crystalline - and reminds Chase of his boyhood in Canada, where snow like this was a constant companion.

America's Home by Rod Chase
From the Artist:
Artist Rod Chase pored over hundreds of old photographs at the National Archives in order to locate the background materials required for "America's Home." As a result of this due diligence, "America's Home" elegantly reflects the White House of yesteryear, making it an exquisite addition to the artist's "Foundation of Freedom" series.

Renascence by Jess Wathen
From the artist:
A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. Look for them, and they'll appear.

Evening in Venice by Rod Chase
From the Artist:
Our first evening in Italy found us on the Ponte dell'Accademia overlooking the famous Grand Canal. Although this scene was familiar to me through art and photographs, nothing could compare to actually standing on the foot-bridge surrounded by the ancient beauty of Venice. My view is actually a composite of three different photos taken at different spots on the bridge forming a more pleasing panoramic composition. Gondolas were added to give the painting life and interest. As in my painting 'The Glory of San Pietro', I muted the colors and intensified the detail symbolizing the rich history and texture of this old-world city. My wife and I look forward to one day returning to Italy and reliving our first 'Evening in Venice'. -- Rod Chase

Leap of Faith by Abraham Hunter
From the Artist:
The disciples are struggling to save their tattered, sinking ship just like we struggle to save our own lives when we don't let go to focus on Christ. They're trying to pull as hard as possible on the rudder to change their direction not realizing that when you're in a small boat, you should sail into the waves instead of running from them. Because they turn away from the waves in fear, they are now broadsided against the pummeling water which has begun filling their boat. This illustrates how when we try to manage the direction of our lives, we can actually self-destruct and sink ourselves by allowing our lives to be governed by fear without Christ. Peter is the only one of the disciples with relaxed shoulders. He has surrendered to faith and let go of his fear. Faith precedes the miracle. All of his anxiety is gone because he's only focused on going to hug Jesus.
The light rays shining in are from the Father, parting the storm. Peter was, at that moment, living in the same mindset of faith as Christ, so I showed an equal ray of light from the Father on Peter and on His son, Jesus. The last little interesting detail is that Jesus, according to the book of Mark, was headed to the other side of the sea of Galilee, and he would have passed up the disciples had they not yelled out in fear. I chose to show Jesus slightly changing direction to his right to go toward Peter. It reminds me of the scripture "draw near to God and he will draw near to you."
I hope this painting makes you ponder and seek the peace and love that comes from no longer thinking it all out, but instead trusting Jesus. One of the biggest struggles we all face is a fast-paced world that causes us constant worry. I was in tears as I painted Christ... the image of perfect love. Faith works by love.
