  Artwork: Lost sheep
  Artist: BONNELL, Daniel
  Technique: Painting
  Location: Private Collection
  Notes: Images on Christ Project. Matthew 18:12. Artist's comment: "I think one of the great mysteries of this pilgrimage of following Christ is the depth of His love for us. We cannot begin to fathum His love and desire for us. Our highest and most lofty thought of worship, is equal to a baby opening its eyes for the first time. It is just the beginning, this discovery of unconditional love from our creator. I often tell my two sons, I am your earthly Father and I will fail you often, but your heavenly Father will never fail you, ever. In this painting of The Lost Sheep, we see that Father in the sun that embraces the shepard and the sheep, a theme that I carry into another painting in this exhibion, The Forgivness of the Father. I often think of how relieved this sheep must have been to have finally been found, its head rests securely on the head of its shepard. The sheep has entered into true rest. May we all know that peace and security."
