Art: The Cross by Artist Melanie Pruitt
I entered this painting in the "Monumental" exhibit for several reasons. First of all, this is the first of two 5 ft x 3.5 ft watercolor canvas paintings that I was commissioned to paint for a Church in Washington. The size alone is monumental. In addition, the memory of painting this is seared into my mind. It was early in my years of chronic illness, a time when the pain was so bad that I was in tears as I crawled around on the floor painting this huge canvas. And lastly, the cross itself is monumental in my life as my faith keeps me going in life when everything is dark and bleak. I believe faith is monumental in anyones life who has faced great challenges and difficult days.  This painting has 2 inch painted sides and is wired for hanging. It is sealed with several coats of Krylon spray varnish.

This is available as an ACEO print, or an 11x14 Sommerset Giclee print in my Etsy shop.
