I painted this Crucifixion during Holy Week 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 Fine 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 prayer mode. This painting has affected me more than any of your others." After reading this and other comments, I decided to post it because I wanted to share this with you, my internet friends.
