  1. I loved this photo. However my response is quite ordinary!



  2. I loved this painting as well Rick and my response is… well, you decide.

    Hi, I’m new here. Here is “my post”.


  6. Glad you are finally home again after your stint “on the road.” Love this painting–also the bird–I am going to try both. I did a thing for “praise,” for the storybook.

    Get some rest. Enjoy your family.

    I sort of went on a tangent.

    Not about sisters at all…

    my four sisters
    armed with love
    ready to take on the challenge
    of spreading it in the world

    randypepper, that about says it all.

    Hello, noah, z, pieceofpie, lirone, pam, jo, joyce and tiel, oz, guatami, rose, glenn and ritwick. I hope I didn’t overlook anyone. The dust is beginning to settle here. It has been a wild summer. I’m looking forward to spending time with your work. Thanks for all the contributions.

    This painting is so beautiful. Who is the artist of the four sister painting? I must buy a print for my mother. Please email the artist name to jimikunkel@gmail.com


  17. rick mobbs says:

    Hey Jimi, I painted it. Who else knows all 4 sisters so well now Doc and Aurelia are gone? Glad you like it. I’ve been surprized by the image’s popularity. I painted it quickly, for fun, thinking about those selfsame sisters. Prints are available. I just emailed you. Best wishes for the holidays and the new year.

    I love this picture and am borrowing it to represent a group we have recently renamed “4 Sisters”. So…I’ll throw out a fun story narrative with it.
    There stood Anne, Leah, Rebecca and Erica once again looking out on the horizon. Each had a battle to fight. Each had to make a choice. Individually, none of them would make it, but through Christ and sisterly love, there was no telling what would become of the impossible.


  19. PsalmistBlue says:

    Btw, I would like to see about buying 4 prints. Are you still out there?

    rickmobbs@gmail.com if you’re still out there!
