Kissing the Face of God - Mary and the baby Jesus
Kissing the Face of God
by Morgan Weistling


“This painting was inspired by the phrase ‘kissing the face of God,’ which I heard in a song many years ago,” said the artist. “I immediately thought of a composition with Mary and baby Jesus and how Mary had the privilege to hold God in the flesh in her arms. She cuddled and kissed him just as all mothers do with their babies. God chose to send his Son into this world in this amazing way — in pure humility.”

Kissing the Face of God is one of Morgan Weistling’s iconic images, a portrait of light and love with universal appeal. This Greenwich Workshop Fine Art open edition canvas is available in two sizes so you can find that special place in your home to enjoy it.

Our Refuge and Strength
by Morgan Weistling

“This painting depicts one of my favorite stories from the life of Christ,” says artist Morgan Weistling. “I remember reading about Jesus walking on water and noting that he was out in the middle of a lake! This had a profound effect on me.

“In Our Refuge and Strength I wanted to show Peter’s point of view, as though the viewer were struggling in the water alongside him. And, like Peter, we come to the realization that Christ is there to save us, as suggested by the light breaking through the turbulent clouds.”

Water to Wine
by Morgan Weistling

"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." –John 1:14

The transformation of water into wine by Christ is the first miracle in the Gospel of John, revealing his glory to his disciples. When wine ran out at a wedding, Christ asked the urns to be filled with water, which then became the very finest wine. The Biblical story also can be read as a metaphor for the blessing of Christ’s arrival and for his teachings.

“My main focus was to make the viewer feel like an eyewitness to the biblical account of Christ's first miracle,” says artist Morgan Weistling, “changing water to wine at the wedding feast of Cana. To convey the sense of awe one would feel, I depicted the astonished face of the servant as he pours the water and watches as it is transformed into wine.”

The Promise
by Morgan Weistling

The disciples Matthew (Chapter 9) and Mark (Chapter 5) both have accounts of Jarius, leader of a synagogue, who pleaded with Jesus to heal his dying daughter. Jesus agreed to see her but before they reached the house, they received word that the girl had died. Jesus told her father not to be afraid, but to believe.

When they reached the house, Jesus asked everyone to leave except His disciples Peter, James and John and the child's parents. Then He took the girl's hand and commanded her to get up. The 12-year-old girl rose and walked around the room. Everyone was astonished, but Jesus told them to give her something to eat and not to tell anyone.

"I chose to depict that moment when the little girl had been given her life back by Jesus,” says the artist. “I imagined the closeness she must have felt for Him. This painting illustrates a real event in time, and it is also symbolic of the life Jesus offers everyone. As a Christian, it is easy to understand the girl’s gratitude because we have all been given life. I am reminded of Jesus' offer to all in John, Chapter 11: 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?'”

Thy Will Be Done - Jesus Christ Thy Will Be Done
by Morgan Weistling

“I was inspired to paint this by the number of times the Bible refers to Christ going off alone to pray to his Father, for example in Luke 5:16: ‘But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.’

“I wanted the viewer to imagine how Jesus would look if you were to come upon him in a private moment of prayer. The painting emphasizes his strong carpenter’s hands, clasped in prayer, representing his communion with the Father. As I painted it I also thought about the importance of praying not only in times of need but often, and thoughtfully, just as Christ did.”

Reflections of God - Jesus Christ Reflection of God
by Morgan Weistling

“I chose to depict a quiet moment while Jesus was in the Jordan River to be baptized by John. I wanted to focus on Christ alone, looking to his Father in heaven, as he fulfilled God’s promise to send a Savior. His reflection in the water extends forward, reaching out to us, the viewers, as does Christ himself with his immeasurable gift of salvation. My prayer is that this painting will not only proclaim the deity of Christ but will encourage the viewer to answer the question that Jesus asks all of us: ‘Who do you say I am?’ (Matt. 16:15).”
