Reworking an older piece - Man of Sorrows
Awhile back I did a piece I was never happy with. It had a good enough base, but never seemed finished. I pulled it out yesterday and decided to punch up the reds, add the turquoise in various spots, and then added the little long legged bird. As a final touch I scratched in the word Sorrow on the man facing the bird. There is a collaged piece of a poem above the men which is the theme for the piece. I tore it out of a book of quotations awhile back and don't remember the author. "He touched her hand and the fever left her. We need His touch on our fevered hands! The cool, still touch of the Man of Sorrows, who knows us and loves us and understands."
