“Anticipando la Redención” (Anticipating Redemption)
15” x 20”, oil on canvas
I painted this piece as a result of an assignment while studying at North Park Seminary. I was asked to write an essay on my interpretation of the last supper and I asked my professor Jay Phelan if instead of writing I could do an oil painting. Allow me to share with you my painting, titled; “An Endless Feast.” It portrays my understanding that when we celebrate communion we are celebrating a feast to commemorate the everlasting victory of Christ over sin. We are all invited to accept the invitation to come to this open table of eternal fellowship of hope and grace where God is present. This feast is open to men and women of all cultures and races, a feast where justice is celebrated.
