I typically don’t do portraits but I was inspired by faith to create a painting of Christ.
While it pales in comparison to some paintings, this is my interpretation. Of course skin color is my biggest hurdle. Whites like to think he is white while blacks like to think he was black. I based the skin color based on what I know of his lineage.
He is not as perfect as he should be but then I am far short of being perfect.
As a painter you should challenge yourself daily. Keep Christ in your life and maybe add a little spirit to your paintings.
This rainy afternoon I decided to hide in my studio to do some painting. I am sure some people will say “what were you thinking”? So….I decided to also include what I was thinking at the time. These are not finished pieces.
My main focus today was on my faith so I started the face of Christ.
We are living in such a terrible time….I try to reflect on things more positive.
I don’t put a lot of thought into my waste canvas art…I just do! With free flowing movement I ended up with balloons. My pallet is empty now…but these will give me something to finish in my next session.
Painting is a great way to relax, do something positive and make the long days go by faster.
Hope you have enjoyed this afternoon in my studio.
Keep your Bible open….the words within will enlighten you.
