Port Orchard, WA - United States

Thank you, Jeanette. I completed the drawing and transferred it to canvas during the summertime. The angry man in the drawn version came out scary looking and I remember a kind of creepy sense of amazement that his image came from my pencil. I proceeded to transfer the drawing to canvas that same evening; which was about 11:00pm. Suddenly the power went out. The weirdest thing about that was that the power never goes out in the summertime and nobody else in the neighborhood had lost their power that evening. Just our house. The painting was due in just a few days to be used at our church for their series on the beattitudes. I wasn't able to do any more work on the painting that night as it was way too dark and I was powerless literally and figuratively speaking. I'll never forget the eerie feeling that gave me. It brought the prayer warrior out of me. I did get the painting done in time, but it was very tight to the deadline.

I agree with Annemeet, the "bleeding" paint really strengthens this image. Wonderfully done. I love how you also posted your initial drawing. It is fun to see the creative workflow.

this is emotional

It is indeed. Thank you for your comment, Cat.

The 'bleeding' of the paint adds a lot to the message of your painting! F/V

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you, Annemeet. Painting this was an emotional and powerful experience that I relive every time I see it. The man in front isn't the only one who is effectively 'bleeding'. Persecution affects everyone and so does forgiveness.

Thank you, Amnon. You honor me with your comment. This painting has touched more people that I could have ever imagined. People from all over the world. And to think that it all started with a simple request to illustrate the Beattitude: Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me (Jesus)...(from Matthew 5:10-11)

Thank you, Karen.

Thank you. The man in front is uncothed to show that we are vulnerable in the flesh, but if we cloth ourselves in the Holy Spirit (shown here with the dripping paint) we are made strong and will overcome adversity.
