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: 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.
