Oil painting Amazing Grace by LINDA CLARK

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, by Linda W Clark is an oil painting on cotton canvas measuring 12 x 16 inches.  It was completed in the spring of 2016 with Limited Edition Giclee prints available shortly after.

My love for old country churches has inspired me to paint Amazing Grace.  I imagined an old country log church sitting back in a field of Queen Anne’s lace. Beside the field were pastures where one could hear sweet voices singing the hymn, Amazing Grace! The words float through the church windows, "How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.  I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see.”  A simple and plain building where folk gather together to praise God, and where hope is raised of turning folk from sin.
