I wanted to create this work out of simplistic lines, ovals, circulars, squares, and out of a sense of arbitrary inspiration. In my mind the most important historical act of love is the one that breaks the division of temporal and eternal that Jesus accomplished. Not only that, but his call to everyone is that it is free to accept… come as you are and place your total trust in his act of redemption. He didn’t say clean yourself up… but pointed to his willingness to do that task. It is by grace…unmerited and undeserved favor offered to us…that we can have that eternal hope of everlasting life. “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 Though the act of the crucifixion was not pretty on its own merits, I wanted a colorful and vibrant blend to signify the beauty of the results of that act.

This is one in a three part series that also includes “Crosssing Over” and “Crossing Paths” All three are on a panoramic triptych also named “Cross Intersection”

God Bless!

I’m pleased to offer this work for your consideration. My goal is to capture and create inspirational thoughts for you to meditate on and ponder. I think life has many balancing factors… from quiet meditation to urgent themes that must be attended to. In between there is lots of Creative beauty! God Bless!

    Very nice work! Your description reminds me of one of my favorite sayings: “God loves and accepts us exactly as we are, and loves us too much to let us stay that way!”

  • Thanks Paula. Isn’t that the truth though? I am glad that no matter what I do, He understands and continues to “pursue my soul”. Family is that way.
