To Live is Christ, To Die is Gain (retouched version)

Today, I put the finishing (re)touches on a painting from last year called "To Live is Christ, To Die is Gain."  Lord Jesus, in this broken world of violence and hatred against your people, may it speak loudly in Your mighty name.

Here are some Before shots of its progress, and the finished piece at the bottom:

Original version, October 2014.

New layer of dark color over background (Black + Indigo).

Applying liquid frisket over the original figure to mask it from additional background layers to be added.

Textured layer of Brown Pink + White.  After drying, another textured layer of Cold Black + White.

Finished piece after retouch.
Romans 1:16, 8:36
Philippians 1:20-21
