From the Farm

The Shack
12" x 9" oil on canvas

This painting was inspired by the novel " The Shack" by William P. Young. After reading it, I searched for images of rundown cabins, shacks, etc.... and ending up finding one in my own backyard! husband's backyard, on his hunting farm in Tennessee. This little house sits on some hunting property and is the childhood home of the woman they rent their hunting cabin from! When I saw it I knew it was the one!!! What a beautiful picture Young paints in his novel of how we are all just like run down shacks until we allow Christ to move in and turn it into something beautiful. I hope you enjoy my interpretation!
