It is great to be back in the studio (and I think I say that every time I have been unable to paint for a while!), and I am excited to be participating in Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 painting challenge again!
I have had a really tough time choosing a theme for this challenge, and I also do not expect to be able to do all 30 paintings, but I am off and running today. :)
This painting is based on Mark 14:3 (AMP) "And while He was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as He was reclining, a woman came with an alabaster jar of ointment (perfume) of pure nard, very costly and precious; and she broke the jar and poured [the perfume] over His head."
I love to think about the costly, lavish gift given by a lowly (in that culture) woman. I like that she poured it all out, breaking the jar and saving none. I hope to emulate her actions, pouring out my life and my treasure for HIM.
