The Art of Liz Lemon Swindle

About Liz Lemon Swindle

“When I paint I always start with the eyes, because they are the soul of each painting. Each day as I came in to the studio I had an overwhelming feeling that he was looking at me. Some days I did not feel comfortable looking into his eyes and avoided them, knowing I could do more or be more than I was. Other days I felt comfortable around him and drew great strength in looking into his eyes. As the painting neared completion I started showing ."

Liz Lemon Swindle - The Prince of Peace

Artist Liz Lemon SwindleLiz 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 Statesmore

Swaddling

    On that first Christmas night, Joseph searched through the inns of Bethlehem looking for a place of comfort for Mary. Despite his pleadings we read: “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn”. - Luke 2:7

Too often we let the distractions of the world crowd out the Savior. Like those in Bethlehem we don’t make room for Him in our busy lives. Each year as Christmas draws near I paint a nativity piece. For me it has become a tradition and my own way of making room for Him. May we each find ways to make room in our lives for the Savior - not only at Christmas, but always.

The Worth of a Soul

  When Mothers Without Borders approached me about going to Africa, I told them I was not interested. For me Africa was a world away, “and besides,” I thought, “I am too busy.” Imagine my surprise when I found myself on a plane to Zambia in June 2007.

One of the first children I met was Kennedy, the little boy you see in the painting. At three years old he has lost both of his parents to AIDS and was found living alone with his six year old brother and ten year old sister. When I thought of those three children struggling to survive and the millions of others across Africa in similar circumstances, I felt an overwhelming hopelessness and said to myself, “No amount of money can fix this.” Later that day while we were filming, Kennedy jumped into the arms of the man portraying the Savior. As I stood watching them, Kennedy turned towards me and our eyes met. At that moment I knew it wasn’t hopeless. I realized that the Savior can fix not only the problems of Africa, but of the whole world…and we can be His hands to do it.

Silent Night

We're all familiar with the traditional paintings of Mary holding the baby while Joseph looks on. I saw Joseph in a more substantial role, perhaps because my children were raised by a stepfather.

I thought of Joseph, a child himself, awkwardly holding this new-born infant. Maybe he sat taking in the grandeur of it all, or perhaps he simply felt love.

Volume III : Son of Man - King of Kings

In this third and final volume in the popular Son of Man series that chronicles the life of Jesus Christ, respected Christian artist Liz Lemon Swindle and Brigham Young University professor Susan Easton Black combine their talents to tell the fundamental stories of the last week of Christ's life through magnificent paintings and inspiring text. This loving account of the ministry of the Son of God portrays the Savior in his mortal life as a friend and leader. Son of Man: King of Kings is an inspirational Christian gift book for all ages.

Susan Easton Black and Liz Lemon Swindle share an artistic and narrative glimpse of mortal ministry of Jesus Christ in the third volume in the Son of Man series. With pen and brush, author and artist combine talents to portray the triumphal entry of Jesus in Jerusalem, his suffering for the sins of mankind and his resurrection. In so doing they share a significant account of the ministry of the Son of God. In this volume they recollect that Jesus Christ took upon himself the sorrows of mankind and overcame death. In their captivating portrayal of his last week in Jerusalem familiar Bible scenes are depicted with grace, as readers are invited to remember that Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords, King of Kings—the Son of Man.

Light of the World

On that night of nights, Mary knew the angelic promise, "Thou shalt bring forth a son," was fulfilled as she tenderly held her newborn infant. In that moment, she could resonate with the heavenly host who praised God for the babe's birth by saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

Why Weepest Thou

Mary Magdalene wept bitter tears at the empty sepulchre, for the crucified Jesus was not within. On that celebrated Easter morning, the query "Woman, why weepest thou?" and Mary's affirmative answer, "Master" rekindled hope for "He lives!"

Seeking the One

“When I paint I always start with the eyes, because they are the soul of each painting. Each day as I came in to the studio I had an overwhelming feeling that he was looking at me. Some days I did not feel comfortable looking into his eyes and avoided them, knowing I could do more or be more than I was. Other days I felt comfortable around him and drew great strength in looking into his eyes. As the painting neared completion I started showing it to others and I was amazed to find that they had the same reaction as I did. Some people did not want to look into his eyes, others smiled and some cried. It was then I realized that he was not only looking for me, but that he was looking for all of us. I remembered his words, What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine, and go after that which is lost? – Luke 15:4. I realized that we are each lost in our own way and that the Good Shepherd never stops seeking after us until He has found us and carried us home.”

The Prodigal Son

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. 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.

Mother

Artist Liz Lemon Swindle captures a simple gesture between mother and son in this intimate portrait of Jesus and Mary. "I created this painting because I find great joy in exploring the relationships between our Savior and the people he knew and loved. This wonderfully tender piece captures the great respect he had for his mother. In Aramaic, his spoken language, he would have called her "inta" (woman) however the title Mother connects the painting more to our modern culture and language."

Jesus

  

Simply put, I love Jesus Christ. I love the life he lived. I love the example he set for me. Most of all, I take great comfort in the reality that he loved me enough to die for me. I am sure that in the years to come my thoughts and impressions of him will continue to change and grow, but one thing will remain the same—my need to testify of his love and life through art.”

Prince of Peace

  

"Jesus Christ is given many names throughout the scriptures, each an expression of either the writer’s or the time’s perception of Him. As I created this portrait I returned again and again to one of his names in particular, one whose meaning feels most appropriate for these times:
The Prince of Peace.”

He That Is Without Sin

  

Liz Lemon-Swindle portrays a Saint John's story about the divine attribute of forgiveness. Knowing that Jesus took pity on sinners, The Scribes and Pharisees tried to catch him condoning disobedience to the Law. They brought before him a woman taken in adultery and said, "Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?" Jesus stooped down, writing on the ground with his finger, as though he had not heard them. When they continued asking, he said to them, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." And he continued writing on the ground. Convicted by their own conscience, they left one by one. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, "Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?" She said, "No man, Lord." And Jesus said unto her, "Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."

She Shall Bring Forth a Son

  

"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son," prophesized Isaiah. Finally, hundreds of years later Isaiah's prophecy became a reality. "Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." But, at first, a helpless, innocent infant baby as dependent on the love and care of his virgin mother Mary as any child is of his mother.

The Holy Men

 

  

“By studying photographs from a dramatization of this moment between the wise men and the child,” Liz says, “I am able to better understand the sacred events that brought the Holy Men to Bethlehem. Their costly gifts to Jesus were not typical presents extended to a child to make him merry. They were gifts for a ruling monarch, in reverence to his birth as King. I created this work based on Matthew 2:1-16 which describes Christ as a young child when first visited by the wise men. The scene is often portrayed in the stable but according to the Scriptures, it could have been 18 to 24 months later.
