I just wanted to drop you a note and give you my reaction to “Gethsemane -Your Will”. Once again, you have filled in the empty spaces for me as you did in “Praying Over Jerusalem”. I stood, physically, in the Garden of Gethsemane, as we all did. I marveled at the ancient trees, the beauty, the history. I found it to be an inspirational, somber, yet festive place (the great weather, the tourists, my friends). Emotionally, those moments there and at the Rock of Agony touched my heart. I stood where my Savior stood! What right did I have to even set foot in that garden? He did so much for me and I brought so little to him. The ground was sacred. It took your painting to allow me to finally feel those moments spiritually, and for me that was the missing part. When I thought of the Garden and its meaning in the past it was always with a degree of sadness, a sense of doom. “Your Will” portrays that feeling, the darkness, the loneliness, a sense of horrible things to come. Your portrayal of Jesus is perfect, it almost allows me to hear the words “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will”. This was the moment that Jesus committed himself to die for my sins, my salvation, and my eternal life! It fills my soul with hope. Your painting puts in my eyes what my head always tried to, but never could visualize. The painting captures it all. The divine light, the path to heaven, the sacrifice He made for me, the darkness, the loneliness, it’s all right there on canvas. Thanks for completing the picture for me Lucy, I’m sure it will have a profound effect on all who are privileged enough to see it.
