Liz Lemon Swindle - Mother -  LIMITED EDITION CANVAS Published by the Greenwich Workshop

Artist Liz Lemon Swindle captures a simple gesture between mother and son in this intimate portrait of Jesus and Mary. "I created this painting because I find great joy in exploring the relationships between our Savior and the people he knew and loved," says Liz. "This wonderfully tender piece captures the great respect he had for his mother. In Aramaic, his spoken language, he would have called her 'inta' (woman) however the title Mother connects the painting more to our modern culture and language."

The painting "Be It Unto Me," first in the "Son of Man" series, captured the essence of the relationship between the young mother and her newborn child. Traveling full-circle, the adult Jesus now holds his mother in his warm embrace. Even as he was dying, one of his last thoughts was for his mother's care directing her to John the Beloved with the words "Behold thy son."

Liz Lemon Swindle
Liz Lemon Swindle has a deep, abiding faith that she feels blessed to share through her art. A lifelong Utah resident, she studied fine arts at Utah State University. She worked for several years as a set designer and painter for the Osmond Studios television production company. As her family grew (she and her husband Jon Swindle today have five children), she saw the need for a more flexible career and decided to focus on oil painting. In the early 1980s she tutored under renowned wildlife artist Nancy Glazier and soon after established her own impressive reputation as a wildlife painter, participating in shows at major galleries in the central and western United States. However, Lemon Swindle became increasingly discontent, feeling artistically and spiritually unfulfilled. In October 1988 she reached a turning point when she submitted a portrait of children to the National Arts for the Parks competition and received the coveted Founders' Favorite award. She realized then that there was an audience for her portrait painting and by the early 1990s she had devoted herself to the topic closest to her heart: her faith. A one-woman show of her Christian art traveled to cities nationwide in the summer of 1997 and a book of her paintings, "She Shall Bring Forth a Son" was published in 1998.
