Drawn to the Word

Bringing the Word to Life Before Your Eyes



Artist & Pastor

Drawn to the Word is a dynamic expression of your ministry brought to life through art. It’s a live painting on a massive canvas, a communal artistic experience, or furthering Biblical education through workshops and retreats. It’s your purpose coming alive in hearts of your people.

Use art to engage people and ignite hearts.

Don’t wait.



“The key to painting is to just simply observe, draw, paint, and paint a lot. I seldom tire of painting. It is who I am. It is how I see the world.”

Please peruse the gallery of Paul Oman Fine Art artwork. Grab an original before it’s gone.

Invite beauty.



Online tutorials and in-person workshops and retreats are excellent ways to build a new skill set or hone your growing artistic ability. You will learn the foundations of painting as well as how to make your painting sing as you’re encouraged to bring your own voice to your work.

Discover who you are as an artist.

Public Cheer for Drawn to the Word and The All-Community Mural

  • "I'm not artistic at all, but I get to have a little share in something that is going to be a really big thing!"

    Paul H. Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Amery, WI
  • "It's fun working together with everyone on the mural!"

    Natalie P. Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, Amery, WI
  • "What a joy-filled project!  People of all ages, working side by side, with all levels of skill and mastery culminating in a vivid, artistic display of God’s rich promises for our lives."

    Heather Eggert Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, Amery, WI
  • "The All-Community Mural was an exercise in community, grace, and living into the gifts given to us by our Creator God!  It was an experience full of the Holy Spirit - watching as people of all ages came together to touch brush to canvas, to laugh and talk and share, to unify their joy in the coming Savior in the creation of a work of art - a reminder that no matter who we are, Emmanuel calls us all to the same space: the foot of the cross."

    Holly Stoner Director of Faith Formation, Our Savior's Lutheran Church
  • "As beautiful as our completed mural was, I believe the even more significant aspect of this project was the process used to create it.  The simplicity of the mural's "paint-by-number" made it possible for both Sunday School kids and 80-year-olds to add their brush strokes to the canvas.  As a community of faith, we worked side by side to create an extraordinary painting telling the story of God's love for us.  Paul's design of the mural and encouraging oversight generated great excitement for all involved in the project."

    Keith Ruehlow Pastor, Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Amery, WI
  • "The highlight of the project was the way people got involved, not just from our church, but friends from the community got interested in being part of the project."

    Jim Osborn Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, Amery, WI
  • "Featuring Paul in our worship was one of the most engaging, meaningful experiences our congregation has had in years.  Paul's gifts of painting and presence are amazing, and the good news shines through him."

    Dan Poffenberger Senior Pastor, Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church, Prior Lake MN
