The Lion, the Lamb, and the Exhibition.

The Exhibition in Port Elizabeth was our first in almost 2 years. It was a mere 3 days but the Lord blessed us with a successful show, and a trouble-free trip to PE and back with our overloaded old trailer. Also we have so many family and friends, new and old, to be thankful to for making it a wonderful weekend. Our son, John, also came from Johannesburg, to help us with the Exhibition. As we hadn’t  Exhibited in PE since March 2006, it was wonderful to have so many of our old friends and patrons coming to visit us.

For those who haven’t seen our Exhibitions before, you may like to see the set of photos that we took, and for those that were there, thank you for making it so memorable!

After the painting of the roses in the last blog-post, there was little time to paint much before the big framing operation. John framed 22 new paintings for the Exhibition. However I did manage a couple of quick paintings,.. a ewe with a lamb; and  a lion on rice paper, that John managed to slip into existing frames.

Lion painted on Rice paper, with white Gouache and Watercolour. 400 x 554 mm.

At this Exhibition we had many unframed sketches and paintings in folders, which proved to be very popular! The cards too, are always successful with a wide range (over 400 designs) and a low price, they were great for all who love art but can’t afford to buy the paintings.

Lion and the Lamb
by——Crystal Lewis

Who is He…The mightiest of all
Who is He…Creation trembles at His call
Who is He…The lowly sacrifice, who paid a victims price
His name is Jesus

Jesus…From the Father’s own right hand
Jesus…Son of God and son of man
Jesus…Who died and rose again
Jesus…He’s the Lion and the Lamb

Who is He…With the power none can tame
Who is He…That every foe would fear his name
Who is he…Who was humbly led away, to suffer that dark day
His name is Jesus
He’s the lion and the lamb
He’s the Lamb that was slain
He’s the Lion that reigns
My Saviour and King both the same

Who is He…With the eyes that burn like fire
Who is He…Oh the wonder He inspires
Who is He…Who bore the guilt and shame
For those who’ve gone astray
His name is Jesus

    Oh Barbs, what amazing paintings these are and I am so thrilled for you that the exhibition went well. You and John worked so hard and deserve all the blessing that you receive. I am especially glad that you sold the big nguni picture – that must have been very satisfying! Lots of love to all of you

    My friend, your blog is the best I’ve ever come across! Fascinating entries about your life on the farm, you creative processes such as the taking of photos, quick sketches, carefully selected quotes, etc. Your exhibition in Walmer looked fantastic and so professional! Thank you for sharing these very special moments in your life with the rest of us out there somewhere.

    Love
    Riana
