Water of Life Mural

I just finished a project today: a mural in the hallway of the religious education building of my church: Sacred Heart Catholic Church. It its titled the Water of Life and consists of six scenes from the new testament with the subject of water: Jesus's baptism, turning water into wine, the women at the well, giving a thirsty person a drink of water (Mat. 25), Jesus washing Peter's feet and Jesus walking on the water.

Here are some photos of it on my Facebook page.

I was able to get some of the teenagers from our church to help paint the mural. We worked from a mock up I painted.

I am begining to feel the need for an art pilgrimage. There is a joy in your painting that is compellig me to see it in person. I really like this. Hard to get a sense of scale but it looks really impressive. I particularly like Jesus' enthusiastic stride across the water.

the watery stride is very cool--just read Matt 14 (15?) this morning.
