The Exodus / Fire In The Night

The Exodus / Fire In The Night


Around the time I was writing Fire In The Night, a friend of mine (Rebecca McEntire) came to me and said she felt really strongly that she was to do a painting of the Exodus (the Israelites leaving Egypt). She felt really strongly that her painting was to include several aspects / details of the Exodus including the pillar of fire at night, the hundreds of thousands of Israelites leaving Egypt, details of how their shoes didn’t wear out during their journey, how they plundered the Egyptians and were given clothes, gold, and silver.

So when I was getting ready to give my concerts for the release of my album, “Fire In The Night,” I asked Rebecca if she’d be willing to show her painting at my concerts. She got busy painting and brought in her almost finished, still-wet painting for my March 9th concert. Here are some pictures of her painting from my March 9th show:
