I was inspired to do a crucifixion painting from the eyes of Christ's spirit, as he was about to die.
The painting is based on these verses: Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty". A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished". With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
The painting also depicts the visual crossover between each eye. Unaware to me at the time of painting, the style seems to point towards iconography.
I have only shown this painting to a few people. They didn't understand it, but I do. What do you think?
