The verse on the back of the greetings card reads, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”  Luke 22 : 42

“The inspiration came into my spirit as I was thinking about Gethsemane. I saw a flash of gold and bronze on a profile of a hooded Christ. I sketched it quickly and felt the need to add a tree both macabre and comforting as Christ reflects on what is to come (Matthew 26:38). The moon boils. The tree is partially stripped of its bark to predict the cross to come. The branches reach to our Lord in an embrace as if to comfort, and bloom with life in his presence. The picture combines the horror of crucifixion, the joy of resurrection, and the glory of the promised bride.”   Shawn Alyea
