Gospel Art

I was looking through the new catalog that came from Deseret Book. I normally see things in there that are nice or that I might consider getting for my home, but never get because I am not in love with it. When I read through this one, I was immediately struck by the beauty of this one picture. I seriously want it SO bad.

It is a stained glass work that has been reproduced on a canvas. I love the simplicity of it and how beautiful it is! I sometimes struggle finding art for my home that is gospel related I don't normally care of the work of Greg Olsen, Liz Lemon Swindle, etc... Don't get me wrong. They are SO talented, but their style is not what I care for. I have this picture of Christ hanging in my home. It is called "Rescue of the Lost Lamb" by Minerva Teichert. All of her work is amazing. I would have all of it if I could!

I remember the first time I saw it, I about burst into tears. I felt like there was a connection to this painting and I had to have it. I bought a print and then had it framed. It is one of my favorite things I have in my home...

So- what are your favorite pieces of Gospel art? Don't worry, I'll still like you even if you have Greg Olsen stuff hanging in your home! :)


  1. I am so with you. I actually don't have any gospel art, other than the Proclamation to the Family. I am a horrible Mormon.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Snuggies. That's a great deal! Let me know if you donate!

  2. You are better than me- I don't even have the Proclamation up in my house. Leah invited me to the lunch with her. I may have to reconsider having just found out about how horrible you are! j/k.

    I'll see what I can do about getting a snuggie for you.

  3. I don't have any...other than a temple picture. Is that bad?

  4. My Liz Lemon Swindle art! HAHA! It is hard for me to find gospel related pictures that I like too. I have pics that I took of the SL temple and framed and I love them too.

  5. My mom has that one with the little black lamb in the entryway at her house! It's nice to see someone else who has it.

    My absolute favorite LDS painting is the one of Christ appearing in the Americas. John Scott painted it. I love all the colors he used! It's in my living room, and I matted and framed it myself! :)
