Description And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Colossians 1:20Acknowledging the precious blood of Christ I am overwhelmed with the image of the blood from the cross which cleanses us unto righteousness. It blesses me to know that the blood of the cross takes care of all my sins. It enables me to come to the throne of God with all my cares. Everything no matter what it is. It is finished by the shedding of the precious blood of Jesus the Christ. My hope rest at the right hand of the Father as I cry Abba, Father (Romans 8:15). Thank you Lord for your son who through his precious blood not the blood of goats, calves , but with His own blood entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption(Hebrews 9:12)This day I choose to live and not die (Deuteronomy 30:19) through the precious blood of the Lamb of God. Knowing this I am reminded that the things of this world (flesh) will not inherit the Kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21) For as in the time of Noah we are in His grace and mercy for He will soon return to the Mount of Olives for His eternal Kingdom. AmenAnd almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.Hebrews 9:22

Artist Statement The primary principle of my art is to paint from life the message of Jesus Christ. Our humanity provides the greatest inspiration for my work. It is through the Spirit of God and the Reborn human condition that my obsession for art is found in larger-than-life representations of the Holy Spirit on Canvas
I love using the contrasts of shapes ,colors , and textures finding them as we relate to the Spirit of God . How our spirit man can be rendered in such glory as we give praise to our creator and God.
With this I can make my case for the wonderful and marvelous creation given to us by God. Creating positive images and reflecting God's greatest attribute –LOVE--
May the presence and Spirit of God reach all who visit this site. Peace and Love Anthony Crudup
