Enduring Love

"Enduring Love"
12 x 16 inches
Acrylic on canvas
(Ready to frame)

I worked on this painting all day. Wanted to make it realistic and yet surreal. Lots of symbolism:
The sunrise symbolizes the new covenant, no longer would animal sacrifice be required for sins and breaking laws. We are forgiven.
The dove symbolizes the fulfilled promise of Jesus, to send us a comforter. The Holy Spirit gives us understanding and power to live a Christian life. Can't live it and succeed with out him living in us and through us!
The crown of thorns is a reminder of the great suffering He endured for us so we can be blameless and find eternal life.
The flowers are called "lily of the valley" which has many different allegories. I was thinking about Christ being "the bright morning star and the lily of the valley." These lilies have healing qualities.
"Whoever is thirsty let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life." Revelation 22:17
