Father, Forgive Them
Oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.
I still feel a bit down with my back/COPD. I had a painting underway for today, but couldn't complete it on time. So, here's one I originally posted in 2009.
I started this painting without much pre planning. Each element was added as a separate, last minute, after-thought ...the light halo glow...the crown of thorns...the stream of blood... the cross against the foreboding sky.
Almost as if it painted itself, as they say. Psssst... Between you and me, I believe that sometimes He takes a hand in it. He paints it...I just hold the brush. I call it PUI..."painting under the influence".
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.

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.
