New Life and New Hope

C. S. Lewis said: “You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box.

But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn’t you then first discover how much you really trusted it? . . . Only a real risk tests the reality of a belief.” Although this was a stretch for an Easter theme, I tried to incorporate Easter colors in the backgrounds, which are my favorite parts of the paintings.
