Through Christ's perfect love as we receive him our joy will become perfect!
This portrait of Jesus Christ I hope will somehow remind each of us to stay on that path He has set before us.
To paint Christ is the most daunting of all paintings. If I were like Him I think in my mind I could do a perfect portrait of Him. Yet He encourages and tells us to be perfect.“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father … in heaven is perfect.”Matthew 5:48.
However all great success must start with our best judgement and effort day by day. So here it is I hope you enjoy my effort of this portrait.
Perhaps the words from Handel’s Messiah will help in some way as it inspired me as I made this valiant effort: Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace and also the words “feed my sheep!” kept coming to my mind as I worked on this piece, my first portrait of Jesus Christ. Eventually I think we all will be able to paint a perfect Christ with in our selves through His perfect Atonement and love.
