He Is Risen

4' x 7'

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, 
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." 
John 3:16

Happy Easter! I am excited to share what I have been focused on the past few weeks - Christ! This is a large painting that I did during our worship service this morning. While the band played through two songs, I painted this portrait of Christ on a large board with latex paint.  It was the first time I have ever painted anything in front of a crowd and it was nerve-racking, but a lot of fun. If you would like to see more photos of the painting in process click here to visit photographer Mick Stewart's website.
