It's Ash Wednesday but it feels like it's already been a season of Lent all year. It's hard to write about. But along with being sad I'm hopeful. Sometimes more than others but any at all is good!
I like this painting a lot. I do enjoy a swarthy Jesus. As part of Epiphany a church was uncovering parts of the painting each week. Once it was uncovered they added the question mark cutout. The guy putting it on said "Won't this deface the painting?" and the pastor said "Yes, and it'll make it more beautiful." I just really liked that.
