Description Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die. Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death. Proverbs 23:13,14This image was derived through the process of the Rhema (living) word which ministered to me during a recent tragedy concerning young man whose life was lost as a result no discipline in his life. The scripture out of the book of Proverbs (23:13,14) sets forth the illustration necessary to save the souls of our young generation. It starts with us the parents and not the Ideas of the media, world, and culture that lures our children into lives with no purpose or direction.

Artist Statement The primary principle of my art is to paint from life the message of Jesus Christ. Our humanity provides the greatest inspiration for my work. It is through the Spirit of God and the Reborn human condition that my obsession for art is found in larger-than-life representations of the Holy Spirit on Canvas
I love using the contrasts of shapes ,colors , and textures finding them as we relate to the Spirit of God . How our spirit man can be rendered in such glory as we give praise to our creator and God.
With this I can make my case for the wonderful and marvelous creation given to us by God. Creating positive images and reflecting God's greatest attribute –LOVE--
May the presence and Spirit of God reach all who visit this site. Peace and Love Anthony Crudup
