Amos Ferguson - Match Me If You Can

Amos Ferguson, born 1920, was a house painter by profession who began painting when he was a boy. He received a vision from God in a dream; God told him to paint the beauty of His world, celebrate the Bible and nature, and to show off his native Bahamas. Amos has followed God's commands and has been painting prolifically for many years.
