Sacred Heart of Jesus


Happy Divine Mercy Sunday everyone.  I recently found a good book called Consoling the Heart of Jesus, inspired by the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.  It brought together the Little Way of Saint Therese, the Divine Mercy, and the Consecration to Mary, three things that seem to be coming to the forefront with many Catholics today.

These two pieces are studies for a painting in the works, the color study below is to work out any changes before going to the final.

Beautiful!Very sensitive and expressive rendering.

Very nice but too feminine. Our Lord was not a little girl and He did not wear lip gloss.

This is beautiful. I rarely see paintings of Jesus that I like, and this one is one of those few. :) Keep up the beautiful work!
