THE THOUGHT BEHIND THE PAINTING: Although this painting wasn’t made in the course of the wrestling process. It came to mind for this exhibit because it exemplifies what happens when we walk in the light of grace. The struggles and the wrestling are given new purpose and new meaning and laying down self and self-ways results in something far better than imaginable. Something purely of Him.
HOW IT RELATES TO THIS SERIES: Unlike “Darkness Creeps In,” when we open our hearts to what God is revealing we will see His marvelous light and experience Him in a new way. Sometimes that way may be a sacrifice of self, but it will be worth every decision. I believe that God revealed His way for the tattoo exhibit for the time being and in turn created other artwork to express the struggle and beauty of laying down my way for His way.
HOW THE PIECE WAS MADE: The acrylic paint on the canvas was applied with the end of a pencil over time.
