A Man Crucified


"A Man Crucified", oil on canvas

A while back someone emailed me and asked me to please paint my own interpretation of Jesus crucified. I told the person that I really wasn't up to the task, and would hardly know how to begin. Yesterday, I was very depressed , but knew I needed to fill up the time. Unable to concentrate, I just let the spirit decide what I should paint. This was the result. And although I held the paintbrush, I really don't feel as though I actually painted this myself. As one of the other daily painters remarked recently on her blog, "When you allow yourself to be a vessel, you will be filled."

Thank-you Jesus, for getting me through a rough day.
