I am continually amazed at how willingly we pass by life’s rare moments of inspiration. Unknowingly we turn away from the quiet glimpses of eternity on our way to somewhere else.
It was on my way to somewhere else in my career when I became moved to paint the life of Joseph Smith. Looking back that one decision has had a more profound impact on my life than almost any other.
I, along with millions of others believe the words of the Lord, ®Wherefore, I the Lord, knowing the calamity which should come upon the inhabitants of the earth, called upon my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., and spake unto him from heaven…® D& C 1: 17.
