"Seller of Purple" Original Oil Painting by Samantha Long
This painting was done as an illustration for the book, "Dear Divine Daughter" by Amber Corkin and Aubri Robinson. It represents Lydia, one of pillars in the Church in Thyatira. She was baptized into the Church by Paul the apostle and thereafter used her wealth and influence as a seller of purple to support the Christians in her community.
