• Solar Eclipse. • Art by Diana Castillo. • Mixed Media on Canvas. • Acrylic paint, Swarovski Crystals, Gel, and iridescent mediums. • 20”x24”. This image I painted after the Solar Eclipse in 2017. It served as a reminder of the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, which a solar Eclipse occurred. This painting of the solar Eclipse is a representation of Jesus Christ on how the cross portrays its message over mankind. Similar to an eclipse of the sun casting its shadow over the surface of the earth, the Cross also casts its message of the story of Jesus over mankind. He carried our sins and died for us. As we accept Jesus Christ into our lives, we can repent for our sins, and be forgiven. Mark 15:32-33 Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him. At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. Acts 4:12 For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Matthew 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near." 1 John 4:10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
