For Me

I have just starting using oils in my paintings after a few years of using exclusively acrylic- this is the second painting I have done- this one is 18" x 24" and I have put it in a gold and dark walnut frame for my own home.

I've always imagined I would not have been able to look away from his face if I had the earth at the same time, his countenance in what you've done says I am surely right....Very nicely done.

Elaine, and the rest of who are into worshiping the LORD, have you heard the song "Holy" by Jesus Culture? I look at this piece by kreativekate and I feel tears wanting to drop.

You see, the Bible (what little of the recorded word of the Word that we possess today) says that Christ was not a particularly attractive man, but there was something about Him that no one would could turn away from. Even His haters were in awe of Him, and the only way that they could erase Him from their minds was to put Him away.

This piece, as are ALL of the other pieces in this inspirational forum, is so inspiring to me. After all, the ONLY reason I got into art in the first place was that vivid dream I had in October 2011. I won't waste anyone's time with the details of that dream, but I recall hopping out of bed and thinking "I have to find a way to share with the world my message!".

That's what we're all doing, as artists, anyway, inspirational or not, right? We have a message to convey. There's just a special song that inspirational art sings to me that nothing else can come close to.

Keep telling the world, kate!

Re: For Me

I thank everyone for their comments on this work but I wasn't happy with it and I painted over it and changed it quite a bit. I hope you all don't hate it now but this is what it looks like now and I framed it and put it in my house and I am happy with it.
