Psalm 63:8 (ESV)
"My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me."
Last December, thinking of the reason for the season, I came to the conviction that the Christmas presents my family would receive from me that year, would have to show the reason why we celebrate Christmas at all: Jesus.
I searched for some cardboard that I could recycle, and painted over them scenes which showed the immensely perfect Love of our Lord Jesus. I'm pretty sure it was the first time I had used my talents for this sort of gift. It gave me a huge pleasure to be able to create these unique pieces for my loved ones. I felt like a gigantic privilege.
|First I drew and inked the scene.|
|Then I went ahead and base-painted it.|
|After that, I gave it its highlights and shadows and added the Bible Verse. In this case: 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14|
|All that was left at this stage was letting it dry and framing it. Voilà!|
