Finding the Name of the REAL Artist

This stunning painting has garnered many inquiries. I stumbled on it on Pinterest  where it was entitled ” What Jesus Did for Me” by  Yongkim Kim. Many people, churches and websites asked how to contact the artist but I couldn’t discover anything. However a diligent reader called Amanda discovered the artist’s true identity, Yongsung Kim. To contact the artist directly, email . Amanda says that “I did a search, and I’m emailing the artist, too!! ”

Did you notice that the viewer sees the bottom of Jesus’s feet because Christ is standing on top of the water, reaching down beneath the surface. Perhaps he is extending a hand to the drowning Peter?

  1. Reblogged this on New Things and commented:
    This wonderful painting makes me want to be an art collector. My heart just wells up with love and appreciation for the times that I have sunk into despair, and the hand of Jesus has delivered me, pulling me up and out of my storm, and granted me the grace of learning to walk with Him on the waters of the tempest.


  2. Melanie the artist’s original intention may have been to depict Jesus reaching down to Peter, but I also see Him reaching down to me. What a blessing! Thanks for sharing it.


  3. There was a time when I felt I was drowning in grief, depression & health problems. When I saw this picture I was reminded of how Jesus reached out for me in the form of a Stephen Minister. Thank you for this inspiring & beautiful painting.

    I would love to buy a print if possible.
