In John, chapter 9, We read of the man who was born blind. After he was healed by the Savior, he was brought before the Pharisees, who questioned how this was possible and who it was that performed the miracle. In reply, the man said, “He is a prophet” (John 9:17). This painting depicts the man, not in the act of being healed or even while being questioned by the Pharisees, but perhaps years after the miracle took place. This formal portrait shows the man sitting and, with increasing emotion, recounting his experience and testimony of the Savior. With this artwork, I wanted to express the lasting effect of being touched by Christ in some way.
