I wish I would have seen this in time to repost for Mother's Day. ❤️
My beautiful mothers day picture came in last night and I wasted zero time getting it on the wall. Thank you so much for this and the warm and loving feelings it exudes! I can hardly wait for my next purchase. The hardest part is picking out just one! ❤❤❤❤❤
Thank you Greg! I’m enjoying your beautiful paintings so much! Today I gave my mother your latest “Little Lamb” picture for Mother’s Day💖 I have one too💖💖
A beautiful day with Son & wife, wish the others weren't so far away.
Amen a mother is as beautiful as a flower and so loving with a heart that has more love than we would always have and always receive us with open arms. With a loving smile.🌹♥️🙏
Where would the world be without our loving mothers!!!
I don't underestimate the scope of damage a mother can do to a family as well.
We can't expect anything but BEAUTIFUL from you, Greg!!! Thank you!
The Mother, beautiful Mother, sharing and showing us, being a true example through life’s twists and turns.. how to handle life!! 💙🙏
This is so beautiful Greg Olsen!
The Catholic Church always used Mary, mother of Jesus as an example of a good wife and mother.
Happy mother's day to all 😊🙏
say that to women first. not all women who become mothers understand that.
Mother's are special.❤
Did anyone else get a Congratulations from Martha Bryant ? She said a few of us won 50, 000, 00 dollars. I know it's a scam but I'm wondering if any of you did? Cause within a couple minutes of looking her up. She vanished.
To my daughter my daughter in laws. I love you. And my sisters. I love you.
Among all the paintings I have done in my now 40-year career, this one will be a constant reminder of a very unique and impactful period in my life, as well as the lives of all of us. This became my first painting done while under quarantine due to the worldwide pandemic caused by the Covid-19 Virus.
This was a composition I had worked out weeks before I knew much about the coming global virus. Subsequently, the imagery took on new and comforting meaning for me personally. It became more powerful and relevant to my experience with each passing day spent in isolation.
During the painting process, I often reflected on the increasingly familiar phrases such as, “shelter in place” and “social distancing”. I marveled at how helpless and vulnerable we all feel in a worldwide crisis like this…like little lambs, separate and alone. I began to look more closely at the imagery emerging on my easel and their relationship to the unsettling circumstances at hand.
I contemplated the new reality of social distancing and isolation. These measures are imperative for our physical well being and survival. However, when it comes to our spiritual and emotional well being just the opposite is true! No “social distancing” is required when it relates to the proximity of our hearts and souls to Heaven and all of Humankind. Physically we may have to “shelter in place” but spiritually our place of shelter is love, faith, and hope!
This painting reminds me that life’s path will lead us through times of sunshine and shadow but we are not alone! This too shall pass. There are still beautiful bouquets to gather along the way and smiles to share with each optimistic step we take.
The still waters have become a reminder of the deep reservoirs of strength and goodness that each person carries within them. Heaven has not left us alone, it is reflected in that peaceful inner well we all have.
Finally, I imagine the Good Shepherd tenderly and calmly saying to us with a smile, “Come on little lamb!… It’s okay!… You can do this!” - Greg
Years ago when I was very young I found this poem I don,t remember all ,"I wish I was that little lamb that nestled in Gods arms to hear his dear heart beating so to hear his voice so sweet " ay little one did you not know your place was at my feet And tho my feet are bruised and torn from seeking thee a weeping I,d gladly go the journey Orr to have thee in my keeping" I have tried to remember all I will someday find it again.Amen
Love all your work but have to say the Saviors tender look at that fluffy little lamb touches me. The surrounding scene is so beautiful and calming during this time.
I've been looking at all your paintings to pick one for my Mother's Day gift and as soon as I saw this I knew it was the one. Thank you. I can't wait to hang it in my living room 💖
I seen this painting and think of Jesus saying Come Follow me you are not alone! I will show you the way! I can heal you! Thank you for sharing your talent with us! you are truly blessed
I love the message as much as the painting. Thank you for your inspiration, talent, love and positivity. I really needed that explanation of the process at this moment in time. Thank you so much, I love you. 🧘🏻♂️☮️🧡🙏🏼

Beautiful, thank you for the message. We are never alone as long as we have our faith. God has given you an amazing talent, thank you for sharing it with us. Your words and paintings are an inspiration to us all. God bless.
Love what you wrote, and painted! The Lord does seek out the lost lamb. This gives us comfort, for as he seeks out one lost lamb, He certainly will take care of all of us through this! Thank you for what you do!
When I was 5, I asked my grampa why he was so nice. He said "Faith, Hope and Charity." Your painting is Beautiful! God Bless🛐
So beautiful! Thank you for this beautiful painting that portrays our Saviour's love for us and gives us hope! Love this! Thank you!❤
This picture, your words, and our Savior are desperately needed. And now is the perfect time for All. Thank you Greg for sharing God’s gift that He has poured out on you. And us!
So beautiful,so peaceful,Jesus guiding his lambs to safety,is he is guiding us, each and every day.Thank you for all the great paintings.
Amazing, I just love this, I have a small painting where Jesus is standing and knocking on a door, along side a little lamb. It was given to me in Sunday School about 75 years ago. I cherish it, it sits on my dresser by my bed. Thanks your painting is perfect. God Bless You. Janet Myron Naber
Beautiful! I love his talented work and the messages behind them.
So very, very Holy and beautiful. You inspire Me. I must paint My Lord and Savior. I have one oil painting I painted of Jesus, but I am not happy with that portrait. I will Try
This reminds me of the Gaither Vocal Band singing GENTLE SHEPHERD. Love that song.
The tender connection between the lamb and the shepherd is evident. Another beautiful success
Beautiful Thank you for reminding us that we are Not alone as long as we have The Lord Jesus
Beautiful new work by Greg Olsen- be sure to read his comments on his thought process in creating this painting.
Love all your paintings. Have many in my photos on my cell phone and share them often. Brilliant work and tallent. Thank you for shareing them.
JESUS, the ONE who loves us most of all. The ONE who casts out fear with HIS mere presence. We desperately need the perfect peace JESUS is offering.
JESUS I TRUST IN YOU ❤️
When we lived in Idaho, we lived across the street from your parents. They were wonderful people and our family loved them very much. At that time, they made their basement into a gallery for your art. I saved every extra penny I had to buy one of your paintings. I will always remember being in the gallery at your parents home trying to decide which painting to buy. I finally chose the one of Christ, the little boy, and the butterfly. We moved away and lost track of your parents. We have never lost our love for your art. We own 6 paintings now. We had to buy one for our apartment while on our mission so that we could feel surrounded by His love. We purchased Christ with the sparrows. Thank you for your talents. Thank you for the precious memories...
This is a beautiful and peaceful painting,God has truly blessed you with a amazing talent.
Aren't we blessed because of that fact! Thank you! God Bless you too.
God love does surrender us. Jesus loves us unconditionally . Love your paintings hopefully I can buy one soon

He wants you to receive from him. There's nothing we can give our Lord but to take from him. When he can pour out his love to us then he is happy. Jesus said, "Oh you of little faith" take more. Amen.
World Peace and healing! For my grand daughter who has depression! For a friend who has brain/lung cancer and is on chemo therapy!

This picture reminds me of a rock in Mount Olive,where Jesus would go and pray to God the father ,hope I am not wrong ,just look very familiar.
Whatever trials and tribulations we have suffered in our life; Remember that JESUS SUFFERED THEM FIRST.
JESUS PAID A DEBT HE DIDN'T OWE, BECAUSE WE OWED A DEBT WE COULDN'T PAY!
