Son of Man
When I create an oil painting, there is a tremendous amount of time spent in composition, layout, photography and otherwise planning for the final piece. Sometimes it feels like I spend more time getting ready to paint than actually painting.But when I sketch, there is to get in the way of my imagination. I finished this sketch while waiting to catch a plane in the Chicago airport. At one point I looked up and realized that a crowd had gathered around me and was watching over my shoulder. It was a wonderful opportunity to share my feelings of the Savior.So I called the sketch "Son of Man" after the scripture in Matthew where the Lord asks His disciples, "Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?" The disciples answered, "Some say that thou art John the Baptist: Some, Elias; and others, Jeremias." The Savior still asks the question and waits for each of us to answer, "But whom say ye that I am?"Just as Peter of old, I too respond, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God."
