No Weapons Formed (Sold)
After visiting the home of Fredrick Douglass sitting on top of a hill in Washington D.C. I was inspired to paint 'No Weapons'. I thought about his life from slavery to freedom. How his bel...ief in what the word of God stated for him meant the equality of all people before God, deliverance from bondage in this life and value himself, love others, and work to achieve freedom. The word of God was what kept Sixteen-year-old Frederick from being nearly broken psychologically by his ordeal with a extraordinarily cruel slave breaker and gave him the courage to escape to freedom. He believed and entered into the way of life in which he believed God had purposed for his life.
