Original Mixed-Media Painting on Canvas

Many would look at this piece, see the cross and the girl’s expression, and say, “Ah, yes, we should be phobic of God or religion”" But the intent of the piece couldn’t be farther from that. As I was painting I was listening to the song “Phobic” by Plumb. The message of the song was to not be afraid to come to God, regardless of what you have done. The words are so powerful they led me to create this painting.

I watched you sit alone - I watched you cry your eyes out - Now tell me what you’ve done
Is it so bad that I would shut you out and leave you here alone?
Yes, I saw what you did - I was right there with you - I won’t let you sink - No, I forgive you
Phobic - Don’t be - Grace needs a little more freedom
Phobic - Don’t be - Love needs room to breathe
I have watched you grow and I’ve stood in your shadow - I’ve never walked away
I hung the stars and I hold your heart, so don’t ever be afraid
Yes, I know when you breathe and I feel when you need - I won’t let you sink - No, I forgive you
You can be healed - You can be free - You can know peace - Never be afraid again
