Artwork in Progress: God is full of Light

work in progress JMcLaughlin3jpg

I continued to work on my Artwork and was inspired to give Jesus glowing clothing and find a way to show the viewer that God is full of light. Now, I could illustrate God like the Sun: a bright silhouette where you can’t see the features, however I wanted the viewer to also be able to see Jesus’ his face and clothing, so I here is an image of my work in progress where I have tried to make Jesus glow.

The scriptures inspiring this are:

Matthew 17:1-2

The Transfiguration

“17 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.”
