Artist-illustrator of sacred and secular themes
My first time seeing this painting. So much to see that one cannot take it all in at a glance!! 😮
Wow! Talk about powerful. Jesus dies for me so that I may be the prodigal son and be welcomed into my Fathers home when I die!
I read about your painting in “Our Daily Bread.” The story was about “The Art of Forgiveness” written by David McCasland. I had to put my eyes on your painting to see if I felt the same as Mr. McCaseland. Your painting is awesome.
I just read it too. Never knew about this painting before. Beautiful
This painting was mentioned in my devotional this morning. I did not even know of it’s existence. I was not exposed to are in my home and therefore find it so meaningful, and beautiful. It depicts the scene from the Gospel of Luke, 15th chapter so well. My heart is grateful that God is always willing and ready to welcome back his children. As a mother I have children who need to run back to God’s open arms. My prayer is that I live to see it.
I love this vivid depiction of the prodigal son’s return!
very moving. And encouraging!
I was reading my devotional from “Our Daily Bread” this AM and the Art exhibit of Edward Riojas was mentioned! This piece is so compelling and so so much like my Testimony of my walk with the Lord Jesus Christ!! I would love to stand and absorb the whole exhibit itself!!! What a Holy Spiritual Blessings Riojas has been given!! Amen!!
This painting was written about in “Our Daily Bread” April 20, 2018. It is A Very Beautiful Painting. I had to Check it out myself….
Where can I get this picture?

We are often times judge and jury for people that aren’t living a life that we think they need to live. We can all relate to the “good “ brother. I’m ever so thankful that Jesus knows I’m a “prodigal son”, and he forgives me and loves me, a sinner saved by his grace.
Of course, we are the “good” brother, too. He’s the one who grouses about those in life who are saved — the same ones who seem “beneath” him. The Father must correct him, giving the “good” son a hint that he doesn’t always appreciate what he already enjoys in the Lord.
My husband and I just read the “Our Daily Bread” devotional referring to your painting, which so vividly illustrates the love of The Heavenly Father. Thank you!
Very Beautiful! Your work is great! I too was reading the Daily Bread Devotional and came across the name of your painting of The Prodigal Son. Thank God welcomed me back when I was “far off” and continues to have open arms when I stray.
My 35 yr. old bible uses the heading “The Parable of the Lost Son”, and states in verse 24 that he
was “lost”, and is found. It does not make mention of him being a “Prodigal Son” anywhere. Why is that ?
Verse 13. Some versions state that the son wasted his inheritance in “wild living,” while other versions state it as “prodigal living.” The parable is very commonly called “The Prodigal Son,” but really the parable is about the goodness of the Father, pointing to our heavenly Father.
