One of the greatest human needs is a sense of security. In all aspects of life, we naturally gravitate towards anything that makes us feel safe. In this piece, I wanted to convey a sense of complete peace and calm like only the Savior can provide. It's a security that allows us to rest assured, without fear or worry, when we put ourselves trustingly in His arms. Little children have that inherent kind of trust in their parents, so it's fitting that the man and girl who modeled for “Security” are actually father and daughter. They generated the exact feel I was looking for.

  1. Oh David this is so beautiful. I wish I could afford to purchase, HOME and SECURITY. Absolutely beautiful and so heart warming. Yes one day I’ll be Home and on that day I pry our Lord is able to tell me I did a good job for Him. On that day I’ll see my beloved whom I lost 10 years ago and I still love and miss him terribly. Our Lord only gave us 38 years 9 months together, such a short time really.
    I come here frequently to just sit and look at these. Why you may ask? It’s because they give me peace just to see them here.
    God bless you David and thank you for using the gift HE gave you to glorify Him.

  2. Thank you for sharing your experience and faith Jackie. I’m so glad my art can bring you some peace. You are amazing. J

  3. I wish I had the vocabulary to express the depth of life your images of Christ have brought to me. I have purchased four of your prints already and will be buying Security next. I have My Child, Joy, Adoration ( which I recently gave away as it touched my friend deeply as well), and Innocence.
    My story is similar to so many on this earth. I experienced severe early childhood trauma at the hands of those who were entrusted with my care. It deeply hindered my ability to emotionally attach to God. I could have Him as my King because in my mind King’s were distant emotionally but their rules were clear and I could follow them. However, after a car accident 7 plus years ago which restricted my ability to work I have been on a journey to know the heart of God. I have read and reread books by A.W. Tozer on God’s attributes etc. and along with your images of Him have been able to pierce through a thick layer of unbelief. My normal practice is to take one of the your images, my guitar and just play singing what is on my heart til the truth of what you have painted reaches the deep recesses of my heart rewriting the lies with His truth.
    I just weep with the knowing how deeply loved I am by God. I can call Him, Abba Father experiencing both the tenderness and strength of His love for me now.

    May God continue to inspire you in your work and draw you deeper into His love.

    I cannot wait to meet you in Heaven 🙂

    Thank you so much for painting !!

  4. David Bowman my friend your art is absolutely AMAZING!!! I would highly recommend any of the work on this website to everyone who reads this review! Each piece is breathtaking and brings such a special sweet spirit into your home! I truly am humbled and grateful for all the MANY hours you continue to spend blessing others lives with your incredible talents! May the Lord bless you abundantly!

  5. hallelujah! I FOUND YOU!! Have been searching for the artist of this amazing painting. I am a portrait artist myself, and have little wall space, which is used up for my own work that I haven’t sold, but I MUST own this piece. The FEELING of this piece is extraordinary. I can feel the deep deep hug. The expression on Jesus’ face…so much emotion showing such love and care and sincere depth of understanding. I will MAKE room! So excited to have found this site. Thank you and bless you!

  6. added note to my previous one…my works are almost all commissions, and the ones that cover my little bit of walls are ones I had to do for myself and won’t sell. Just had to add that. :o) I have only bought one print ever before that moved me so much. I’ve seen many that I love, but only this and one other that I MUST make room for. I know it will give me peace and comfort every time I see it. I feel so much like it is me that Jesus is hugging, a “soul hug” as I call them-reaching to the core of you. thank you again.

  7. A beautiful painting that is heart warming. It has taken me a while to find you Mr. David Bowman. I first saw it on Facebook and I have been looking for this art everywhere. I noticed your signature on the painting and tried all possible name combinations on Google to know the maker. I thank God that I finally found the painting. May God continue to bless you and use our talents that expresses God’s love for us.


  8. I saw this picture in a music video of “As the Deer Pants for Water” posted on the blog Sunflower Seeds. It took me about an hour of searching, but I finally found you. I plan to purchase this amazing painting which just grabbed my heart when I saw it. What a perfect title for this piece! I cannot even find the words to describe the comfort I find in this painting. Some day I will feel that embrace! Thank you David Bowman for such a wonderful depiction of our Saviour! God has blessed you with a wonderful gift! Thank you for sharing it with us.

  9. Hi David. Do you sell postcards of this beautiful print. It’s my absolute favorite and I want to share it with so many in a simple way.

  10. “Security” was part of a collection of your artwork, in the Article of Faith series, I fell in love with and wanted to share with friends experiencing cancer because of the feelings it generated. However, the colors of the one I have from the Article of Faith set is much much warmer than the set I received. The one I received looks like a black and white copy. Please let me know how I can order the colored set. Thank you.

  11. Thank you for your art and for the picture Security. This has become my favorite picture of Christ since it is how I feel it accurately represents my feelings and relationship with both my Savior and my Heavenly Father.

  12. Does “Security” come in a black and white option?

  13. I have this picture on my wall along with the lyrics of “Just Be Held” by Casting Crowns. I have shared the picture with so many people who are struggling, reminding them to lean into Jesus and “Just be Held”.
    So many people have found comfort in gazing at this picture. I am now ordering a couple packets of the cards so I can give them to people. Thank you for the gift of your amazing art.
