Psalm 22 Forsaken
Painting - Painting (pastel)
This abstract painting attempts to capture the concept of personal sacrifice to help those thought forsaken. Original is a 11"x14" painting (soft pastel on paper).
Inspiration: On the day of his death, Jesus is said to have cried out with a loud voice, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" A thousand years prior, Psalm 22 was written that starts with that same phrase. It is said Jesus was quoting from that writing and on that day, he died and descended into hell to save those who died before his arrival rather than retiring to the comforts of Heaven. This piece illustrates a willingness to turn away from the easy comfortable choices in life in favor of making selfless decisions to go where help is most needed despite any additional suffering that might require. Jesus is shown turned away from Heaven's light toward hell's flames below as an act of selfless love to help those thought unsavable/forsaken. A powerful message that has resonated for literally thousands of years.
