Over a month or so ago I remembered my pastor preaching about God’s love saying that it is everlasting from life, to death, through the afterlife. This statement was my inspiration for the creation of “Everlasting Love.”
I created this piece using chalk pastel on paper. The heart, representing God’s love, is there with us through all of phases of our existence. The gray color block represents life. I chose gray because I think about how we live and that the decisions we make aren’t always in black in white. The second one, black, represents death. We tend to think of death as an absolute because it is the end of life. I, on the other hand, look at death as not the end but the middle or a transition. Finally there is white, which represents the afterlife or eternity.
