I actually finished drawing this on 12/5/2010! It is 5×8″ pen and ink on Moleskin artists journal paper.

On the back I wrote, “Stuff I Dream In Church – The Beatitudes.” I did that because I only worked on this at church. Pastor Clark was teaching through the Beatitudes when I finished it. Yes, I was drawing in church. Not that I needed it, but I had the Pastor’s permission :) Here are the Beatitudes if you are interested.

Matthew 5:1-12 – “The Sermon on the Mount; The Beatitudes”

5:1 When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. 2 He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying,

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

5 “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.

6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

10 “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    I LOVE this one! Maybe it’s the colors and the fact that there’s all that white space. I don’t know why, but maybe it’s the gentle and merciful sections reaching out to others that I like. That’s my interpretation, anyway. :-) I wonder what others will see in it.
