Study for Dr. Mouw of Fuller Seminary

Here is a commission piece I received from Fuller Seminary.  I am not done, but I like where it is headed.  I hope to get back on the painting track after all that has gone on.  Pray for my soul. Don
Here is an add that my New Jersey gallery just ran.

Dateline Scrapes Bottom of the Barrel

While CBS 48Hours was watchable from the standpoint of those who know Rachel--the Dateline show was an amalgam of lies, words out of context, and sensationalism.  Rachel's closest friends at her death would not interview with Dateline for fear of reprisals from Todd, the killer--from his prison cell.  Her brothers were very attuned to media bullshit and refused to have anything to do with it.  So Dateline scraped around for what it could get.  Rachel always took pity on the weak and lonely--and it was the remnants of this group that had their say on TV.

In short the program portrayed Rachel as an adulteress and her father, Don Hatfield, as the progenitor of the sin. I guess this is what you get when you talk openly with the media--I asked for it.  In the end my family rests in the knowledge of sins forgiven and in the love of Jesus Christ.

Blessings, Don
