"When I paint I always start with the eyes," relayed Liz Lemon Swindle,

"because they are the soul of each painting. Each day as I came in to the studio I had an overwhelming feeling that he was looking at me. Some days I did not feel comfortable looking into his eyes and avoided them, knowing I could do more or be more than I was. Other days I felt comfortable around him and drew great strength in looking into his eyes.

"As the painting neared completion I started showing it to others and I was amazed to find that they had the same reaction as I did. Some people did not want to look into his eyes, others smiled and some cried. It was then I realized that he was not only looking for me, but that he was looking for all of us. I remembered his words, 'What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine, and go after that which is lost?' Luke 15:4. I realized that we are each lost in our own way and that the Good Shepherd never stops seeking after us until He has found us and carried us home.


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.
