We’re sure that you’ll want a copy for yourself and some to give as gifts after you view the work of this most unusual and gifted artist
Parables: truths illustrated, amplified, enhanced and applied, through the use of creations and their stories; lessons presented on a road that travels through the scenic valleys of the imagination; a path that circumvents certain defenses and pragmatic judgments found on the barren of plains of mere intellect. This road, with its veiled entrance, winds its way to a less guarded door to the heart. A truth found on this path may catch a person unaware and slip into the heart before pride and willful blindness slam the door closed. Once inside, the truth sheds light that cannot be extinguished by any darkness.
Each wooden parable displayed [in this book] presents a truth. Their stories are related in verse and retold in prose. Though each piece tells a separate story, a scarlet thread passes throughout the book tying together the different images in an attempt to reveal a Person. It is my prayer that the eyes of your heart will look past the works, beyond the artist, and into the eyes of the Creator, whose story they tell.
