He Died (23"x 40" acrylic on hardboard) Having completed the painting of the resurrection, He's Alive!, someone asked if I was going to do a crucifixion. I had to admit I'd not considered it. But the more I thought about it and the more the image began to take shape in my mind, the more I began to warm to the idea. I visualized another "break the frame" painting but this time even more dramatic that the resurrection. This time I chose a vantage point like that of the thief on the cross next to Christ. I wanted to emphasize the nail-torn hand, leading the eye to the sad, worn look on Christ's face, and then the dramatic impact of the event itself.
