Fruitful John

"Fruitful John", Acrylic on Canvas, 2005, ( Private Collection)

"We love him, because he first loved us." (1 John 4:19)
Years ago, I kept asking myself : " Do I love God?" or " I must love God! or else..."
Eventually, I found out that if I always force myself to love God, I am actually putting myself under law! Which means I try very hard to love him...but seem so difficult to love him in my efforts! So in the end, the only way I can do is just simply enjoy and rest in God's love daily... Slowly, I found out - the more I enjoy his love, the more love overflows from me! In the end, I can just love him naturally and sometimes not aware of it!

Hi, artist,
Your painting style is very lively, and the composition is unusual - very eye-catching with the piece of land in the middle! Continue to let your imagination flow... :)
