The Meaning-Easter

Easter 2012

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.

This is a painting of a crop from last year's Easter painting. I also reprinted the original commentary. It all fit together so well.

This is my contribution to The Easter Challenge at DPW posted by Carol Marine .

Carol said: With Easter right around the corner, this week's challenge is to paint it in any form you wish. Feel free to paint your own eggs/candy/bunnies/whatever moves you! As usual, have fun!
I wish you all a happy and blessed Easter. Please remember the true meaning. Keep love and hope alive in your hearts.....The best is yet to come.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Luke 23:34 NIV
Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

Mark 16: 4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.


  1. Thank you for sharing your lovely painting and your thoughts with your friends Dean, I especially enjoy reading your quotes from the Bible.
    Wishing you a blessed Easter Dean.

  2. Une très belle contribution mon cher Dean.
    Je vous souhaite à vous et à tous ceux que vous aimez de joyeuses fêtes pascales.
    Gros bisous

  3. Powerful....I wouldn't think to crop it like that....and yet it works perfectly. Dynamic.

  4. Is this from the piece that I own, Dean? (It is downstairs on my mantle; I am up on the computer.) It is gorgeous and I just love it!

  5. Good Friday Morning to you Dean!... A lovely image... cropped or not! It spells out the truest meaning of Easter!

    Image and post are "eggs-actly" on the money!

    Thanks for sharing Dean!

    Rich Blessings... and Happy Easter!
    Warmest regards,

  6. I personally like the crop, and the post. Very beautiful, and so true.
