Paintings of the Christ

I recently discovered the works of artist J. Kirk Richards who paints mostly religious paintings of the Savior. Maybe you have already seen his works, but he's new to me, and I just think they are absolutely beautiful, and I just had to share, especially at the beginning of the Christmas Season. If you know me, you know that I am very picky and particular about portrayals of Jesus Christ, especially with LDS artists. So, these works are ones I totally love because they are artistic and reverent, without being cheesy (read: Simon Dewey).

And, I loved this one so much, I bought a print of it to put in my home:
"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." 
Philippians 2:10-11

It really is such a wonderful time of year to celebrate the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ. I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas season. 

Love you all!

  1. One of my life goals is to own one of his original paintings. Follow him on instagram. You won't be sorry.

    Also, one day I'll have to tell you about the time I went to a book signing and met him and felt like the BIGGEST dork in the whole wide world.
