The Prodigal Son

It's been a while, hasn't it?

Here's the finished product of the Prodigal Son. Quite different from my original sorry excuse for an idea (see earlier post).



P.S. I grew up my entire life thinking that "prodigal" meant "really bad" or "really REALLY BAD" or something similar. I remember when I first realized that it meant "wasteful" it felt like an epiphany. Thinking about that even now, it really brings the parable close to home, because WASTEFUL is a way that's all-too easy to be in light of God's grace to us.

wow. i'm in awe. you know my first thought was that it looked very art nouveau...a very strange mix of Mucha and a dash of Leyendecker even. I love it.

Chris, You're amazing. This is beautiful! As a matter of fact, I think this could be my favorite of all of your stuff that I have seen. You get a gold star... no, TWO GOLD STARS!
