This new drawing of Jesus Christ was created with charcoal on strathmore paper.  This second version is a more accurate depiction of the human body and proportions.  Of course, most of the drawing was created from my mind, but I did use a model (myself) to get the right proportions.  Please post a comment and let me know what you think.

Some Thoughts Behind This Drawing

I was thinking and concentrating on Jesus’s message to love one another. One hand is reaching out and one hand is on his heart for so many reasons: to love God, to love your neighbor as yourself, to be centered on His (Jesus) love, to be centered on your own love, that within you is the Kingdom of Heaven, that within us all is the ability to become like Him, we are all children of God, our souls desire to return to God.

Jesus Christ from Luke 6:27-36

[27] But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, [28] bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. [29] If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. [30] Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. [31] Do to others as you would have them do to you.

[32] If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them. [33] And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ do that. [34] And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ lend to ‘sinners,’ expecting to be repaid in full. [35] But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. [36] Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

The Love of Christ Is The New Age

I am an artist compelled to create inspirational paintings and drawings from my heart. My art is always an expressionistic message of love. Hopefully, it speaks universally to all people in a positive and uplifting way. Some of my work makes use of sacred geometry that can be found in nature, figures in prayer or meditation, or the chakra energy centers that are within the human body. For this reason my art can fit in the category of New Age. From my understanding there is not one concrete definition of what New Age is.

My own personal thoughts are that the New Age is not anything other than ancient wisdom being revealed in the present moment. The truth from the foundations of the world is still the truth today. The understanding is that there will be changes on the earth and there will be changes in the consciousness of people in the dawning of a new day. There will be a New Earth and there will be a New Heaven. The change of consciousness has already occurred upon the introduction of Jesus Christ into this world. There became a new understanding of God as a source of love by a great number of people across the world. The teachings were meant to uplift the consciousness of humankind to let go of judgment and transcend to higher energy levels through love and through the acceptance of God’s merciful gift to the world – love incarnate, the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

It was taught that If we better understand that the heart of God is mercy, and become a source of mercy and love ourselves, then each one of us has a closer relationship to God as we form a connection to all that is in the universe and feel the warmth that is gives. Through this greater understanding we begin to see ourselves as a son or daughter of God the Creator. And through this understanding we will be transcended back to God.

To me, the term New Age implies a universal spiritual awakening within the heart of man to achieve this unconditional love – a Christ force. This feeling, this vibrational energy, can be felt anywhere and everywhere. Not just in a church, but at home, in nature, through art, in meditation, and through interactions with people. I believe that as more of us let go of judgment, and embrace this force of love and allow it to flow, we will embrace our brothers and sisters of all nationalities and religions.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan, From The Holy Bible: Luke 25-37

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

He answered: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “

“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
