Artist Comments: This painting was a fun one to do. At first it appears to be a bit surreal which is not the genre of art that I normally do. I’m a realist painter and in my work I strive to represent the world as it actually appears. This painting is actually a landscape and was painted from an actual photograph that was taken in Namib-Naukluft National Park, Africa. It depicts camelthorn trees with a sand dune rising in the background. The sand dune is bathed in orange by the effects of a rising sun. The trees are in shadow from another nearby dune. Some believe these trees have been dead for hundreds of years and that their failure to decompose is because the desert is so arid.

Artist Comments: This painting is a religious themed landscape painting portraying the cross in silhouette against a colorful evening sky. It is not to be taken as the literal representation of the crucifixion of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rather it depicts that moment in time just after the disciples took His lifeless body down from the cross.

The Holy Bible tells us about this momentous historical event throughout its pages. From Scripture we learn that Jesus Christ endured the crucifixion from approximately 9 A.M until 3 P.M. and that His dead body was removed from the cross just before sundown. Whereas, the four New Testament Gospels describe some kind of supernatural phenomena which occurred at the moment of His death.

From the four Gospels we learn…

  • The Gospel of Matthew account mentions an earthquake,  the opening of the saints tombs in the vicinity and the resurrected saints making an appearance in Jerusalem.
  • The Gospel of Mark reveals how darkness spread throughout the land and the temple veil being ripped in two.
  • The Gospel of Luke tells us Jesus was crucified with criminals and that the Roman soldiers mocked Him and cast lots for His clothing.
  • The Gospel of John describes how the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and that Jesus was crucified at Golgotha which means the place of the Skull.

Calvary At Sunset is part of a series of oil paintings called the Christian Art Series.

Artist Comments: In the summer of 2000 a friend of mine made several business trips to Ireland. After he completed his work for the day, he would venture out into the nearby countryside and local communities to see the sites and take photos of his trip. This landscape painting is from a photo of one of the places he visited while there. It depicts Bunratty, a small folk village in southwest Ireland not far from Shannon and Limerick. The village gets its name from nearby Bunratty Castle, a large 15th-century tower house in County Clare, Ireland. The castle is a major tourist attraction famous for its medieval banquets. Bunratty Castle overlooks the Raite river and the village lies just to the west of the castle. The castle and village are open to the public and feature around 30 buildings.

Fun Facts About Bunratty
