This painting is based on Isaiah 40 : 11 which says, “He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.”
“As I live in Mid Wales, sheep are an important feature of the landscape, and I have always felt drawn by the passages from the Bible which talk about the shepherd and his sheep. During the Covid lockdown, I read Isaiah 40 and wanted to convey some of the promises of God that I read in that chapter.” Sue
