Description One day in ancient America, a man named Enos went into the woods to hunt. As he did so, the words his father taught him concerning eternal life and the joy of the saints sank deep into his heart. His soul hungered. He fell to his knees, wrestling within himself for forgiveness and praying for his soul. His struggles stretched throughout the day and continued into the night, until at last a voice came unto him, saying: 'Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou shalt be blessed.'From the Book of Mormon, Enos chapter 1: 1-6.In this painting, Enos is on his knees, praying to God for his soul. All other cares have been put aside until his pleas for forgiveness are answered.
Lester Yocum, Glen Burnie, MD Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I am a husband and father of three great children. My beautiful wife and I have been together since our marriage in 1983.
I have worked in a wide variety of jobs and locations, including graphics shops, photography labs, and television center within the private, commercial, and federal government sectors.
My involvement with the graphic arts goes back to 1983 and includes traditional and electronic arts, illustration, animation, and design. I used to do layouts with Rubylith (remember that?) and technical pens, pasting up waxed galleys for brochure and poster work. QuarkXpress and InDesign are what I use today; Dreamweaver and Plone are my tools of choice for the Web.
I work in gouache, oil, watercolor, ink, colored pencil, pastel, and airbrush. Oil is my preferred medium, but nowadays I'm as likely to use Illustrator, Photoshop, or Painter and a Wacom tablet.
