Description Acts 9:1-9'Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lords disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?Who are you, Lord? Saul asked.I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, he replied. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.'
Ernest Vincent Wood III Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement Born 1979, Ernest Vincent Wood III grew in mind, stature, and spirit and loved many a created thing. He attended Wichita State University with a general art emphasis until he was firmly but gently directed in oil painting. Even though life took many unsuspected turns, he finished his BFA in painting in 2006. That following Summer, with assistance from the Kansas Cultural Trust he attended The International School for Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture in Umbria, Italy. Once there, fate would bring him into contact with Irish painter Ted Jones and his gallery representative from Killarney, Ireland. A friendship developed, which led to the first painting sold of Ernest's work on Irish soil in 2007. Yearly shows followed in 2008 and 2009. Now married, he intends to continue painting, come what may.
