“And when they had come to the place called Calvary (the place of a skull), there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left.“
– Luke 23:33

Your adoring cousin
Yes, Louise, powerful imagery, appropriate to this unprecedented time of foreboding.
Unbelievable Ned !!!
I love it and will share
Love you and Frances
Please give her a hug and kiss
And a hug and kiss from me to you
Yes, Juli, thank you for relating.
Thank you for the gift of your artwork this Resurrection season.
I’ve viewed it several times and read your efforts to produce this masterpiece.
It reminded me that there’s been a struggle for “the crown” … and you’ve focused us on the fact that this demonic crown is under the feet of Jesus.
I know that Frances has crowned Him King over her life.
Yes, Bev, “corona” and “crown” come from the same word root. Indeed, I had considered making a “crown of thorns,” replacing the thorn points with coronavirus spikes. Yes, Frances (my mom) has been devout over her entire life.
