Description
The artistic power of Liz Lemon Swindle's emotionally charged image rests in the father's face and the intense grasp of his hands. The true spiritual intensity evident in the father's embrace of his wayward son represents God's unconditional love for us. As found in all of her paintings, Swindle's detail for humanity is channeled through the image and to her collector. One is hard pressed to find any difference between the emotion and relevance of such a scene then, and one that happens today, 2000 years later. The Prodigal Son is a reminder of God's amazing ability to forgive and restore us, and of the human need for family and grace.

The Artist

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.
