My latest oil painting that I have been working on is titled
"I Will Lift Up My Hands in Thy Name,"
which is taken from Psalm 63:4.  The idea for the painting was inspired by a lady in my ward, Carol Whitaker.  We happened to be at the temple at the same time one day.  She came up to me and told me about this idea that she had with Christ's hands with the nail prints and other people's hands reaching for His hands.  We both liked the idea of having different types of hands.  Each one of us can lift up our hands in his name.    
 
I have been trying to improve my oil painting skills, and hopefully I am improving.  I do still feel like I have a lot of room to get better, and will continue to try.  It is a lot different than watercolor, but I have really been enjoying the challenge.
