David's First Goliath

Admittedly, This painting began as a personal piece, but has grown to be a favorite of many with many interpretations, including Daniel and the Lion’s Den, symbolisms of Narnia, and others. I’ve always wanted to paint a ‘David and Goliath’, but as I was studying the verses, it struck me how David was so very confident by the time he confronted Goliath. I realized that the Lord had already prepared him. Where did the real challenge occur and when was his faith truly tested? Alone, and without all the fanfare. Just himself, a lion, and the Lord. I feel that’s how most of us face our Goliaths…
