The Spirit of Giving by Dave Barnhouse again illustrates the heart of giving. Here we sitness a warm episode in small town life. The local farmer on his Oliver tractor has donated time and equipment for the annual Salvation Army sponsored holiday hayride.
On this chilly evening the wagon has stopped at The Salvation Army building on Main Street for a cup of hot chocolate. After a brief rest they will continue their ride, laughing and shouting, Through the snowy streets, creating fond memories for the watching adults. This nostalgic painting reminds us that young people are the precious resource of an entire community, and that The Salvation Army is “on guard” not only in times of crisis, but also in the quieter moments of everyday life.
Today Dave works mostly with oil paints. But, as soon as he could hold a pencil, the artist started expressing his artistic talents. One of his first drawings was a threshing machine on his grandfather`s farm in Ohio. “He drew all the little details,” remembers his mother, who encouraged her son to pursue his art.
Enjoy Spirit of Giving on your wall for a lifetime.
