KING OF GLORY

from 35.00

This Resurrection piece was created to speak life and power and hope to me and to you.

I really had fun in the "process" of creating this one...

imagining Jesus having just come from conquering the grave -coming up from the depths. 

As I splattered "glory" and paint and color from far above the canvas and then going back to my knees to wipe all that had splattered off of his precious face- I wondered what it must have been like as HE rose victorious?

COVERED in glory...shattering death.

THE KING OF GLORY.

As I worked on this piece...anointing... and pouring out bottle after bottle of my most extravagant fluid

golds these words echoed over and over in my heart;

 "It's too much, it's too much, it's too much!!"

I even began to feel a little guilty pouring out so much extravagance and then I began to imagine the

conversation in deepest heaven before the beginning of time...what would Redemption cost? 

WHO would enter in?    

The COST would be TOO much...almost out of reach... but worth the most extravagant sacrifice.

And then,

 Jesus volunteered.

YOU and I were worth it.

 

As I was finishing up I happened to stumble across a paint color in the studio called "winter blue"-of course-

so I added one final pass with a nod to CS LEWIS - it is true-  winter is over and now death is working backwards. 

AMEN.
