What if Christ came into my Clutter?

Irit has her theme local places. But I couldn't get any inspiration from where I had been locally recently, but I love my cluttered room. I could spend all day there and I wondered, what if, my best friend, Christ, came into my Clutter? What would He do? I then used my Italian friend as a model to set up the possiblity of this happening? What do you think would happen? I think He'd look up and pray I.............



I have done this piece in gouache on mount-board.

  4. Beautiful work. I love the shimmer of the robes and the point of view. I think He's with you no matter your location. Your work is always inspired.

  5. Oh so beautiful, Adebanji. I like the combination of textures and the opposing diagonal lines leading our eyes to Christ, outstanding!

  6. I just received this book...it's fantastic in person!!! Love the idea behind this painting.

    ps...I don't believe messy rooms would get Christ's attention as much as cluttered souls. :)

  8. How great that you happened to have a friend who looks like many people's idea of what Christ looked like. Although from what I hear, he may have had much darker skin. No matter what, this is very nice and I like that smile which says, Adebanji, I love you just the way you are! What clutter? :D

  9. Fabulous piece Adebanji. I'm so slow in commenting here, that I can say in real life, (because it is now in my possession), it is even more impressive.
