Painting the crucifixion of Jesus was an emotional endeavor for me.  Every stroke, every hue, pierced my heart and caused deep reflection.  My 20"x16" acrylic painting is titled, "Golgotha", and it remains in my personal collection.  A reproduction of this painting is available to purchase.  EMAIL ME

Written seven hundred years before the birth of Jesus, the jewish prophet Isaiah wrote, "He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.  Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:3-5
