His Own City


“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death
Light has dawned.” Matthew 4:15,16

In this painting, the moon represents the Word of God, because it reflects the sun (Son), and the seaside town is an image of Capernaum, where Jesus lived with Peter, Andrew, James and John. The Sea of Galilee is where Jesus began his ministry, the cradle of the Gospel. It is where He stilled the storm, and where He revealed Himself to His disciples after the resurrection. It is a lake basin with the Jordan river running through it; its waters are always fresh and teeming with life. Capernaum is the midst of the towns where the miracles occurred. Matthew 9:1 mentions it as ‘His own city’. Jesus went all about Galilee, teaching, preaching and healing, and great multitudes followed Him. 

This painting carries the word of destiny to follow the path of Jesus in healing and teaching, and going about His Father’s business. You will know his purpose. You will follow His footsteps with intelligence, gentleness, and caring towards other. 

In Capernaum, Jesus was never far from His parents’ home, and I sense remaining ‘close to home’ is significant and strong family ties are important. The Lord gives favour, ambition and determination. He brings you life, revelation and understanding to share with others in “your own city”. 



Technically-speaking, our prints are not prints at all, not in the common use of the term, but are fine art reproductions of original works. The quality is so high that it is difficult to tell between the reproduction and the original. Giclee Reproductions are premium high-resolution digital images produced on museum quality, Canson 300-320gsm Cotton Rag (fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) printed with archival Canon Lucia EX 12-colour pigment high-performance inks. Canon Lucia EX pigment inks achieve an “under glass” permanence of 95 years for colour images.

Giclee can be confusing, as many may incorrectly assume that all digital printing is equal. Essentially Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is an invented name from the French word ‘le gicleur’ meaning ‘to squirt’. Originally coined in 1991 to distinguish between common digital prints and the highest quality form of art reproductions using wide-format inkjet printing technology. In 30 years, this technology has advanced enormously, giving an even wider distinction between Giclee reproductions and digital prints. However, we still use the word ‘print’ so that we are easily understood. 

Fine Art Giclee Reproductions should be framed behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your reproduction and read our blog article “Caring for your Fine Art” for information on ensuring your artwork still looks amazing for 3 – 4 generations.
