Streams of Mercy

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. - Psalms 51:1

Story Behind the Art:

I painted this in response to a challenge to paint something deeply meaningful to me with no thought of how “marketable” the piece would be. It did not matter if no one liked it but me; it was my personal quest to create something I felt passionate about. The result shows Mary holding the body of Christ soon after the Crucifixion. This painting may also be interpreted to be of the angel who strengthened Christ in Gethsemane. In both interpretations, the angelic figure represents each of us and our deep love and awe of the Savior’s mercy and grace. - Annie Nader
