"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

WIP


This is something I began some time ago.

I had the background finished and was not sure what to add. There are several layers of colors under the black cross, some are peeking through.

I like it so far, can't decide if I want to leave it as is or add words!!! Sometimes words are not necessary, and sometimes simple is better.

I'll let it be for now.

This is Beautiful,I love it just the way it is but there is so much more you could do,the hands remind me of"that we are all children of God" plus they're three which that number represents alot in the bible, do what ever your heart leads you to do,either way its beautiful.

love how the colours show through beneath the cross, very symbolic of the many layers of Christ's sacrifice. The hands make it even more dramatic. As for the words, I defer to the artist, and her graffiti self :-) Love seeing the scratches and marks you make into the wet paint. Wish we could all see this one in person.
