Artist: Donald Hilliard, Jr.
Like many of his paintings this limited edition print of the painting "Let Praise Arise" reflects the bold optimism Hilliard exudes. "I am a colorful person. I am gregarious, considered an extrovert," Bishop Hilliard said, "I love bright colors, colors that lift the mood." "I let the paint move me, and the mood move me. I like to see how, in my case, God creates something out of nothing. It's an empty canvas, and that's how our lives are. I say we create our canvas. Regardless of what canvas life has given us, hope means we can start again. We are still being painted."
