Description Browns and yellows dominate a portrait of a strong man of faith. From the time when he began to have access to the Bible, he questioned works as a means of salvation. Discovering the passage 'The just shall live by faith', he came to the conclusion that nothing he could do would merit eternal life, only faith in Jesus Christ, by an act of God producing faith in the saving work of redemption by Jesus Christ. This painting reflects his sternness with himself, and his ultimate transformation, as the eyes seem to be reflected strongly in the lower half of the painting. Not a large painting, this could be used on a desk or in a study area, to give a viewer moments for reflection and thankfulness for the grace of God. Originally titled 'Smart Gent' because of words that appeared as the paint dried, this painting also includes what seems to be a crown around his head, perhaps representing the believer's crown of victory available to all who have faith in Jesus Christ.
