John Calvin Painting by Phil Starke

My father, Phil Starke, sent me a very special gift in the mail yesterday.  He is an artist, professionally, and, also a reformed Christian.  He did his first painting of a Reformer or Church history figure and sent it to me as a gift.  This is a painting of John Calvin to commemorate his 500th birthday.  I wish I had a better camera to capture this image.  Its an amazing painting.  What a treasure for our household to cherish!
