In 2011, Colorado Baptists commissioned local artist, Richard Marks, to create a series of four paintings depicting Nicy Murphy’s vision of Missions in Colorado. The 2011 painting is "Mountain Grandeur" and the 2012 painting is "Water of Life". The 2013 painting, The Good Shepherd, will be presented at the annual meeting in Grand Junction.
“This painting symbolizes that Jesus is our Shepherd and we are like sheep, Matthew 18:12-14,” said commissioned artist, Richard Marks.
Building off his 2011 and 2012 paintings, Mountain Grandeur and Water of Life, this year’s watercolor emphasizes God’s creation. While all three of the paintings are scenes from around Colorado, this painting is set in northwest Colorado.
