"Aslan is Coming" Oil Painting

24x24, Oil on Canvas

My last piece for the C.S. Lewis show coming up.  I had thought at first I would do a piece where Lewis was walking through the woods dreaming up Narnia.  As I got going on the coloring of this piece it really had a mind of its own.  I finished it and my oldest daughter said, "It's like God is coming." It got me thinking about Aslan and how when he came back to Narnia the woods thawed and warmed and came back to life.

It got me thinking about the metaphor of that for our lives. Haven't we all needed thawing?  Where God warms us from the winter of our hearts?  I have.  Hold on.  He's coming.
