    This is so beautiful Sister. To me it depicts our Beautiful Shepherd & Saviour who shed his blood for His sheep. The Greatest Gift Of All ❤ Sister…. Will these be for sale like your other paintings? Future thought …A painting of the crown of thorns…with maybe a single rose (like The Rose Of Sharon) would make a great painting and call it The Greatest Gift Of All 🌸 You are an amazing artist with a wonderful gift !!

      Thank you so much for this kind assessment, Patti. When I am asked to paint something special for someone (this was a commission), it usually pulls much creative thought and energy from me as I hope to meet the expectations of another. For this reason, painting the same thing again often escapes me and my paint. The idea of the lamb with the crowned, suffering Jesus was the thought of another prominent Christian artist. My same themed one looks quite different out of respect for her work. But do let me know if I can ever do something for you. Easter Blessings.
