Put Your Hand To The Plow And Don’t Look Back
by Dana Vacca
In my painting I wanted to depict the Believer who puts his/her hand to the plow and keeps his/her focus on what is before them, the future, the Lord, and never looks back. Looking back would cause the rows to be crooked, cause the horse to falter, and their path to stray and curve; their toil would be greater, last longer; their goal taking a lot longer to reach.
