At The Cross, Acrylic on Canvas, 12"X12" (Available at York and Friends Gallery, Nashville)
Every time I start an abstract painting, I never know how it's going to end. It's always a surprise. I experiment with shape, line, color, value, division of space, texture. I ask myself, “What if I try this or that?”… See below the stages of this paintings.
Last week, a really close friend of mine passed away. I had the chance to talk to her and shared my faith before she left this world. Just like my painting, we never know how and when our lives are going to end. Easter season is a good time to remember God’s greatest gift to us. Let’s remember why His son, Jesus, gave His life to save us. Death on the cross was not the end. Indeed…this is the greatest gift of all, He gave us ETERNAL LIFE! Imagine that! I take comfort in hope that I will see my dear friend again.
The Bible says: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you…
1 Peter 1:3-4
From my heart to yours, I wish you all a Happy Easter.
