The Garden Tomb

Garden of Gethsemane Israel painting

© Copyright 2004 – Present

Size: 9″ x 12″
Support: Stretched canvas
Description: An oil painting of a famous Israeli garden visited by many every year. It depicts the Garden Tomb at Gethsemane.


Artist Comments: This painting of a rock-cut tomb situated in the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, and is one of my personal favorites. This famous Israeli location is believed by many Christians to be the burial and resurrection place of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull. Being a devout Christian, this particular painting has a lot of personal meaning for me. It is one of two I painted of this famous travel place. The other painting is called The Garden Tomb at Sunset.

The Burial and Resurrection of Jesus the Christ
“As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.” Matthew 27:57-60

“He is not here: for He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6

The Garden Tomb is part of the Holy Lands series.

Artist Comments: This gothic church was originally painted and made famous by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh in June 1890. Van Gogh’s church is located in Auvers, France. I wanted to do my own rendition of this lovely church and the results of that desire are what you see here. You can find out more about Van Gogh’s painting of this church on Wikipedia: The Church at Auvers.

Although our styles are vastly different, Van Gogh is a favorite painter of mine. I love much of his work, from that vase of sunflowers to this old church in the village where he lived before his death. Many of his oil paintings were characterized by bold, dramatic colors emphasized by impulsive and expressive brushwork. He painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits.

According to Wikipedia, Van Gogh is considered among the “most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.”  He painted around 860 oil paintings and many of these were painted during the last two years of his life. He died at age 37 by a self inflicted wound. You can read more about Van Gogh here.

This canvas art is part of a series of paintings called the Christian Art Series.

Artist Comments: This painting is second in a series of Holy Land paintings featuring the Garden Tomb. The famous tomb is located in the Garden of Gethsemane near Jerusalem and is considered by many Christians to be the actual burial and resurrection place of Jesus the Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull, rather than the famous Church of The Holy Sepulchre.

Many believe this to be the site of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus because it so clearly fits the description described in each of the Gospel accounts.

Site of the Crucifixion:

  • Skull Rock outside the city walls of Jerusalem
  • Near a gate of the city
  • Along a busy thoroughfare
  • At a place of public execution
  • At the place of the skull – Golgoatha
  • A garden nearby

Evidence regarding the site of the tomb can be found in Matthew 27:57-60.

  • Skull Rock located in a garden
  • Belonged to a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea
  • Cut out of the rock
  • Sealed with a rolling stone
  • Entered through a low doorway
  • Burial chamber situated to the right of the entrance

Artist Comments: The Sea of Galilee a large freshwater lake located in northeast Israel, between the Golan Heights and the Galilee region. The Jordan River is its main source of water. The lake is approximately 13 miles long and 8 miles wide.

This painting is of the famous Bible place was inspired by my love of God’s word and readings about Jesus in the Bible. I love Israel because God’s chosen people live there. I have never visited Israel, however, I would love to go there someday. The painting was composed from a photo in the “Pictorial Library of Bible Lands”. The photographer, Todd Bolen, graciously gave me permission to use his photos for any of my Bible land paintings.

According to Matthew 4:13-22, this historic biblical location is where Jesus began His ministry and called His first disciples. This passage tells us Jesus left Nazareth and went to Capernaum. While walking along the banks of the Sea of Galilee Jesus called the first four of His disciples Simon called Peter, Andrew, James and John.

Other scripture references about Capernaum: Matthew 8:5, 11:23, 17:24; Mark 1:21, 2:1, 9:33; Luke 4:23, 4:31, 7:1, 10:15; John 2:12, 4:46, 6:17, 6:24, 6:59. You can easily look up these scriptures here.

Artist Comments: Monument Valley Utah is considered one of the natural wonders of the world. It provides perhaps the most enduring and definitive images of the American Old West. This valley has long been a favorite location for filming Western movies. The isolated red mesas, striking spires and sandstone buttes surrounded by empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years.

Called Tsé Bii’ Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks) by the Navajo, this famous valley lies in the southern part of the state of Utah near the Arizona border within the Navajo Nation Reservation. When you first approach the area, these rock “monuments” will take your breath away. The eerie rock formations make you feel as if you’ve been transported to another planet. It is truly one of the most majestic places on earth.

The first time I visited this national park I knew right away I’d love painting this beautiful valley. I’ve actually painted Monument Valley several times. I have memories of several paintings I did of this place when I was a youngster studying under my dad who was also a professional oil painting artist. My dad loved painting this location too and painted several oil paintings himself. None of those early paintings are around anymore. I’m not sure what became of them. My dads paintings sold to art collectors and local businesses in the small community where we lived.

Artist Comments: Currituck Beach Lighthouse is located at Whale Head Bay in Corolla, North Carolina on the northern end of the “Outer Banks”. Its distinct unpainted natural red brick appearance is in contrast with fellow lighthouses along the North Carolina coast which are painted in striking black and white. Built in 1875, it is still used today to light the dark stretches of the southern Atlantic coastline. Annually the lighthouse welcomes an average of 185,000 visitors and we were among them.

One summer my husband and I loaded up the kids and headed off for the Outer Banks to discover the lighthouses we’d heard so much about. We lived in Virginia at the time and was only two hours away from the OBX (Outer Banks). Currituck Lighthouse was our first stop and the favorite of all the lighthouses we visited that fun filled weekend. We were excited to discover that visitors can climb its 220 steps to the top and look at the spectacular view. We’ve been back to this lighthouse several times since that first trip and we always enjoy seeing this it over and over again.
