“Ash Wednesday” – 24”x30”


This piece is part of a special collection of artwork that I created in 2017 to celebrate Lent, Holy Week, and Resurrection Sunday. Created with acrylic paint on canvas. Each painting features abstract textures, geometric shapes, and botanical elements to symbolically tell the story of the day it represents. This piece represents Ash Wednesday, the day that marks the beginning of Lent, with the shape of the cross and the bark, burned palm branches.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent.  The palm branches depicted in this piece represent giving up old things.  Traditionally, the ashes used in Ash Wednesday services come from burning the previous year’s Palm Sunday branches.  The four gold lines forming the shape of the cross represent the forty days until the crucifixion.
