Worktrip
G. F. Sam Wagner (Overland Park, KS)
Mixed media: acrylic on panel and paper, ink
2009
12” x 9” x 1.5”

Worktrip is from a series of paintings called “Little Things (I should have said and done).” It is Wagner’s look at personal relationships and response to issues of work and priorities, family and parenting. Although there may be regret from the past, there is hope for a better future as Christ continues to mold us. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good work, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
