At The Gate

This painting/combine expresses moments of time between the artist and his father when he was on earth and in heaven. It was at the gate in the backyard, when the artist was 3-years-old, where his father said goodbye to him before moving out. Many years later, after his father passed away, the artist had a vision during a worship service — where he saw his father reaching down from the sky signing "I Love You" to him. Then he saw someone touched his shoulder, and the vision of his father disappeared.

We have an awesome God!
