Creation Date: November 12, 2017
"Jesus Wept" is a painting inspired by the death of a close friend's family member in an accident. It is Christ weeping at the tomb of Lazarus. The three lilies represent the trinity, also God's creation reaching out to comfort their creator. The jewels and gold texture represent the angelic presence and Christ's prayer. The sun is portrayed as the square in the upper right corner, or the tomb soon to be empty. The robe covering the Lord's head is large to represent his authority. The viewer may see numerous other things or view each symbol with their own meaning and they are just as valid as mine.
