Refiner's Fire


My inspiration to do this painting came after watching the "Mormon Message" about Refiner's Fire.
I was touched by the comparison that was made between the work of a blacksmith 
and how our trials can make us stronger.
"The refiner's fire is real, and qualities of character and righteousness that are forged in the furnace of affliction perfect and purify us and prepare us to meet God." -Quentin L. Cook Oct. 2011

This is an oil painting of my daughter Caislee.
It is the last of a series of all of my children 
to "redecorate" my living room.
