He Did It for Me



I've been so reflective the last few days of all the events that led up to Jesus's crucifixion and felt compelled to find a different image of Jesus on the cross to paint. I loved the more intimate crop of this image that, to me, conveys so much emotion. It was hard painting the blood dripping from his body especially, but the whole painting is so humbling and is a constant reminder that He did it for us! We are saved by this mighty event. Also, when we feel like complaining about things in our daily lives, this is a constant reminder that what we're experiencing is NOTHING compared to the torture that Jesus endured for us because he loves us so much.

HAPPY EASTER, ALL!
