This is a painting elaborated with acrylic and inks on raw canvas. My process consists on meditating after praying and Bible reading. I paint freely in a very gestural manner as a way to reflect a moment with God while listening to music. I must confess, this is also a way to reach personal catharsis. I no longer need model to paint human figure and usually paint an art work during a single session of three or four hours.
To fight is a constant in everyone's life. As Christ followers we are warriors willing to fight whatever is trying to take us away from the God we love and His will. Yet the most intense fight, is to surrender our very sinful nature, our flesh desires and ego to Christ. I depicted a man dramatically raising from a kneeling man's back, but yet coming out strong and ready to fight with his bloody hands ready to obey. He's reborn after a fight. This drama takes place over and over again in different areas of our lives. Praying is a key to be able to stand and a direct way to develop a relationship with God. We humble before him and He lifts us up! Sometimes to surrender might mean to bear pain, but God never asks for nothing He will not compensate dearly. He deserves all efforts. God is the one who will help us all through this process.
