99% OF DEREK HEGSTED CUSTOMERS SAY THEY OWN MORE THAN
ONE OF DEREK'S PRINTS!
"The quality of the canvas impressed us as soon as we saw
it. It looks and feels like an original. We thank Derek
Hegsted for creating "Light of the World" and for having
such high painting standards and attention to detail."
Robert and Suzanne Stevens
“Derek J. Hegsted with his oil painting Journey’s End, must
be considered a capa d’opera among Christian processes and
content-form driven paintings. Completing just one or two
paintings a year, Hegsted – through the sale of reproductions
of his pictures – has made a career of religious painting.
His painting of flesh is both sophisticated and emotional,
going beyond the typical grisaille (monochrome painting)
quality of most realists.”
Painting and Sculpture by Dr. Vern G. Swanson, Robert
S. Olpin, and William C. Seifrit, p. 276
|The picture "I will not fail
thee" has brought my family such hope and
peace. It still hangs in my bedroom and I go to
sleep and wake up to it every day. When my
mother had to go into a convalescent home before
she died I bought the print and brought it to
her and said "mom, this is just how you looked
as a little girl - when you look at this picture
imagine that is you with Jesus holding you." I
cannot tell you the peace and comfort that it
brought to my mother before she died. Thank you
so much for your gift.
|Derek Hegsted is an artist who pours
his soul into his work. His hands provide a vessel
for the spirit of the Lord to testify of God's love
through this medium. His work is personal, deeply
layered with testimony, and filled with meaning
and matters of eternal importance. Our family owns
several of his pieces, and we look forward to future
purchases. His artwork touches the soul and the
heart of what it is to love the Lord.
|I met Derek at the local fitness
center and had no idea I was in the presence of
such a fantastic artist. Derek is very personable
and what touched me most is the outpour of concern
and caring he has for his wife and six children.
My husband and I were just admiring his work and
I have to say that although one leads you here to
look at and/ or purchase artwork, you could not
be purchasing and supporting a more caring man and
his family and he has great sense of humor!
|Daniel and Genelle Pugmire
|Since his earliest days as a budding
artist we have watched Derek fine tune his gift.
His prints grace our living room and bring a
level of peace to our family. Several guests in
our home have been mesmerized, touched and renewed
by his representations. We recommend his work to
all who seek to be edified by art, and to those
who appreciate the style of some of the greatest
artists of the world. Derek's paintings not only
come from his heart and mind, they come from his
very soul. His paintings change lives. They will
change yours too.
|Love the artwork, my personal favorite
is the children playing in the stream with the sticks.
