Heart of My Heart
The couple that commissioned me to paint this painting looked on the internet to find an artist to paint a realistic, prophetic painting of them. When they first contacted me and asked me to paint a painting that was predominantly a portrait of them, I hesitated. I have not done portraits in many years. They had looked at many artists' works and wanted me to paint their anniversary painting. I agreed and they sent me some photos of themselves and we talked briefly on the phone. Come to find out we attended he same church and had never met! I prayed and asked the Lord to give me a painting that would reflect their marriage and God's encouragement to them. When I presented them the painting and the prophetic Word that went with the painting, they were very pleased and got tearful as they looked at the painting and read the prophetic word. They were greatly encouraged and shared how the painting and the word affirmed the direction that God was leading them.
Rooted In Love
This painting was a commissioned painting for a couple celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. It speaks of their rootedness in Christ and their love for one another. They are one in Christ and their roots go deep into good soil. They were very pleased with the painting as it was a gift from their brother and sister-in-law.
The Fish That Got Away
For years I had wanted to paint a fish painting for my father. He loves to fish off the pier in San Clemente, CA. It wasn't until we almost lost him due to blockage in his heart, that I was able to paint the above painting for him. After he survived bypass surgery I created the above painting. The painting almost created itself. I began the painting with the intent that the painting would be for my father.... then I saw this fish emerge. I named it The Fish That Got Away because he got away from the hook of death.
Music CD Cover
The above image was one that I was commissioned to do for a West Virginia band called Marguerite. They described the colors, style and semi-abstract landscape they wanted. They were very pleased with the final painting, as it was exactly what they were looking for.
Painting for a Couple
Many times when someone commissions me to do a painting, it is a gift for someone I've never met. I'm given a bit of information about that person or couple, but not much. I then pray and ask the Lord to give me an image for that person or couple. The above painting was painted for a Pastor and his wife in York, PA. As is always the case, I wrote out a prophetic word that further explained the painting and encouraged this couple. They were blessed and the painting confirmed the direction that God was leading them in their ministry.
"Bringing Heaven To Earth"
The woman who commissioned me to paint this painting gives her review of it below. It was truly a blessing to create this for her.
"I ordered this personal prophetic commission painting from Deborah Nell's store guided by the Spirit. I never thought that it was going to be so inspiring and mean so much to me.This painting is an image that shows so many layers of things I have seen and felt in my heart for some time now. The dancer has a constant movement that flows while you look at it.Such detail and grace. I also wanted to point out that up above the arm by the head their appeared what looks like a mans face. To me it is Yeshua (Jesus) blowing His Spirit down to earth through the Praises and Worship that is lifted up. I also received a prophetic word that amazingly speaks about how God blows down on the earth. This is completely Spirit lead.I am so incredibly overly satisfied with this purchase.I will be ordering more.Thank you Deborah"
