How utterly romantic that God desires a relationship with us that is not only spiritual, emotional, or symbolic, but also physical. Like a man who is not satisfied with merely gazing at his beloved but leans forward to kiss her in all tenderness, so our God gives us His very body and blood—a free gift meant not only for the disciples who walked with Him, but for all who attend the Supper of the Lamb.
I was inspired for this painting during mass one day. As it was one of my first attempts at digital painting, I spent dozens upon dozens of hours working to get it just right. My dad has been selling magnetic prints of it from his site since the Christmas after I painted it, and it’s weird to walk into random people’s homes and see it stuck to their fridge.
