Live painting during Good Friday Service

A 45 minute live painting I did during Good Friday Service.  I heard a song the other day and it stopped me in my tracks.  The lyrics of "I am not the same" by Seventh Day Slumber went straight to my heart and I had to know more about the singer, Joseph Rojas. Wow.  I heard the song again the other day, I realized he was singing, "It is finished, it is done" and knew the message of his song was meant for me to hear.                                                                                        

"It is...finished"
30 x 40 acrylic on gessoed blue print paper
