This was a rather difficult and time consuming painting. I probably should have painted it larger which would have made it quite a bit easier for me to paint. This Shepherd represents how Jesus is our great shepherd and tending His sheep .He leads and guides us into the safety of His presence. The picture in my mat is 12.50″ x 8.25″ with an inscription under neath “He Leadeth Me” However. you can put any mat around this painting and make it your own and insert it in your own frame.
