“Risen” (oil on canvas, 122cm x 91.5cm) is a painting that pays homage to Jesus Christ the Messiah who forsaking His deity, took on human flesh to show mankind how to live a holy, sinless life, culminating in the ultimate sacrifice...crucifixion at Calvary. Many portrayals of Jesus leave Him on the cross, which is not the final chapter of His life on earth. Jesus conquered the grave, rose from the tomb and appeared to many, including His disciples to instruct them on how to communicate His message to the world. My goal in this painting was to portray not only the sacrifice of Jesus, but also His victory over death and the resulting gift of salvation available to all mankind. With outstretched arms He died, with open arms He lives!
