Our suffering Savior




During Holy Week of every year, I do a painting of the Crucifixion, or the face of Jesus, and  this year I did an abstract  (my first attempt in sacred art) of him inspired by the Shroud of Turin.   This helps me to focus on Our Lord and his suffering during this holy time of the year.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus


I feel very honored to tell you that this painting of the Sacred Heart is now on the cover of a book by Carol Eubank entitled A glimpse into my Heart, Letters to My Daughter.    It is a beautiful, deeply spiritual book of letters written about the faith and the love of The Lord.   We didn't know each other prior to this project, but we both had devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and I know that He brought us together.

This is the Crucifixion I painted for Holy Week, 2014



I painted this Crucifixion during Holy Week, 2014, but was concerned that it might be too modern for my sacred art blog and was unsure about posting it.   I emailed a copy out to family and friends, some of whom are artists, to get their opinion and the response was overwhelmingly positive.   My friend and fellow artist, Awilda Harrington, who just this past week had one of her paintings accepted by the Museum of Find Arts in Saint Petersburg, FL, had this to say.    "Wow . . . the reason I like it is because it is disturbing to me.   His face demonstrates sadness as well as a pensive thoughtfulness as if in a prayerful mode.  This painting has affected me more than any of your others."   After reading this and other comments, I decided to post because I wanted to share it with you, my internet friends.
