The end of St. John Chrysostom's Easter Homily really packs a punch at evil:
O death, where is thy sting?
O Hades, where is thy victory?
Christ is risen, and you are overthrown!
Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen!
Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice!
Christ is risen, and life reigns!
Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in a tomb!
For Christ, being raised from the dead, has become the first-fruits of them that have slept.
To Him be glory and might unto the ages of ages.
This sunrise print highlights the life-giving treasure we received from Christ's Passion and Resurrection with three words from the wonderful homily - and life reigns.
I love finding quotes that speak to the everyday life and then putting them to watercolor and acrylic paint to create pieces that can hang on your wall and be seen hundreds of times a day. After I paint or hand letter the art, I digitize them and have them printed on the following substrates:
- 5x7in, 8x10in and 11x14in sizes are printed on 100 lb white linen paper for an elegant and high quality finish.
- 16x20in is printed on high-quality, archival grade, acid-free, 100% cotton rag, 21 mil, 340gsm inkjet paper with a bright white, textured surface.
- Stretched canvas on .75in pine wood stretchers is available for pieces size 8x10in and up. The canvas used is thick archival grade, poly-cotton blend canvas to provide greater durability, and the canvas is pH neutral and acid free so it will not yellow over time
Your print is packaged in a sturdy cardboard mailer to ensure it is delivered safely to your door. Frames and props are not included in your purchase.
