What's on the easel?

A new painting by simplynrae!!
(her prints and origionals are for sale at http://tereslie.deviantart.com/).
Here you see the sketch version, done in charcoal and pencil. She has enlarged this sketch on canvas and will be painting it with oil paint. This is the second in a series of "Messiah" paintings she has been working on.
This one, titled "Writing in the Sand", is her image of Christ when He was met with the woman caught in adultery. The accusers said she must be stoned according to Biblical law, however Christ aswered that whoever is without sin should cast the first stone...proceeding to write in the sand.. the accusers left... the woman received unmerrited grace. A beautiful story of mercy, grace, forgiving. I see here also a need to encourage a sinner in the right direction instead of casting harsh judgement... for we all sin...we are all guilty..just as she was.
Thank you, Lord for your unmerrited grace!
And thank you for this beautiful talented youth!
Leave us a comment ... we would love to know what you're working on this week.
