Quintessential Artist

This was to be his last painting. All of his brushes were dried, tubes all closed, canvas spent and the easel put away. A horde of artist’s tools put to rest.

Still an unknown battle raged within his mind; he was driven inside. The urge to create pursued his spirit. The proclaimed last painting depicted the cross of Christ, He in all His agony, humiliation and pain. The Son of God, the slain Savior.

It did not end there, for He arose, He lives as the artist must also live. A beautiful masterpiece he feels he must design – oil, pastel or watercolor. Some have called his work amateurish, but he will persevere. His brush shall reach the profound crevices of men’s souls, the immovable matter that makes stalwarts weep.

He prays to the God of Heaven each day and night that the Lord come soon. He fears his time on earth may run out. In his own words the artist declares: “I will paint until the Christ returns on the clouds, when my humble brush creates Him in all His glory, as I pour my soul of eminence onto canvas.”

Can't pronounce the Title, but loved the writing on this piece. Short, sweet and to the point. Love the brief, but packed with talent entries! This is one of those; and I've still got to look up the "Q" word in the dictionary. (smile)...but meanwhile... awesome thought, a riveting story and I enjoyed the read! Thanks! Good job, and real "pro" writing...with impact.

Short and very professional. Nothing amateurish in your entry, and in time the painter (perhaps after his death) and his work may be given the glory they deserve.
