Artist Statement

This is a large mural painted in my old elementary school that has been converted to a church. I am a figurative painter and portrait artist. This scene of Jesus rising from dead shows that and is along the lines of my intention to show emotion through a moment in time.

How it fits into contest

Jesus is our ultimate shield. Verse 12. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
