“For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still” - Isaiah 9:12, 17, 21

Story Behind the Art:

 After Christ’s victory on earth and his resurrection, His wounds are left as a reminder of what he did for each of us. By “descending below them all” he now has perfect love and mercy toward us all. I pictured Him reaching out to us with the marks in His hand.  None of us are beyond His reach!  There are times when we are surrounded by darkness, and some of it because of our own choices, in which justice has hold of us, as in the phrase “... his anger is not turned away…” However, His mercy is always available to us reflected in the phrase, “...but his hand is stretched out still.” In a sense, I have seen His hand break through the darkness in my life many times, but once quite significantly that changed my life forever. I wanted this painting to be lighter than many of my other paintings, and very smooth, which to me is how the resurrection is. The edges of the painting are a little darker, so that it feels as if Christ’s hand is cutting through darkness and introducing His light. The angle of His hand reaching towards me is inviting me to take it and be welcomed into His presence. -Chad Winks
