Happy Easter

ResurrectionEggs

This week I pulled out my paint and made some art for Easter. The goal of this painting was to reflect the contrast between the cultural Easter with colorful eggs, chocolate and bunnies, and the Christian Easter of blood, death and resurrection. I’ve always wondered how the Easter Bunny and Christ got woven into the same holiday. The one theme that I see in both traditions, is the theme of “life”. Christians celebrate Christ’s resurrection from death into life;  bunnies are symbols of fertility, which is the potential for life; and eggs are the start of life. So, I chose to use the “Easter egg” to (hopefully) make this connection visually.

It was an interesting exploration. And I’m sure, there’s lots more that could be interpreted from it, but I’ll leave that up to you 🙂
