About "The Lion of Judah"
Bible Verses Related to this Oil Painting
Revelation 5:5 (NKJV)
But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
Genesis 49:8 (MESS)
You, Judah, your brothers will praise you: Your fingers on your enemies' throat, while your brothers honor you. You're a lion's cub, Judah, home fresh from the kill, my son. Look at him, crouched like a lion, king of beasts; who dares mess with him? The scepter shall not leave Judah; he'll keep a firm grip on the command staff Until the ultimate ruler comes and the nations obey him. He'll tie up his donkey to the grapevine, his purebred prize to a sturdy branch. He will wash his shirt in wine and his cloak in the blood of grapes, His eyes will be darker than wine, his teeth whiter than milk.
Genesis 49:9 (NIV)
You are a lion's cub, O Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness—who dares to rouse him?

I currently live in Somerset West, Cape Town with my beautiful wife Mari and my two little doggies, Nicky and Eddie. I work as a webmaster for a large South African Team Building company and paint part time in the evenings and over weekends.
I developed a love for painting in my early twenties and have been painting now for over 17 years. My art qualifications include a Commercial Art diploma at Intec and a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree at UNISA.
Over the years, I have focused on various subject matter such as African Wildlife, Portraits of Nelson Mandela, Christian Paintings, Floral and Landscape Paintings. These days I paint whatever I find beautiful and interesting, as well as painting on commission. Previously my paintings were all done in oil paint but I have recently started using acrylic paint. I have found this medium very suitable to my technique as I tend to work in layers. The quick drying time of Acrylics means that I can work faster and more intuitively without having to wait for the paint layers to dry.
I have sold a number of my paintings online to customers from South Africa, United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. I continuously update the Paintings For Sale page with new paintings, please have a look at the paintings there and contact me if you are interested in buying any of the paintings. You are also welcome to commission a painting.
