Aggravation

Thursday, May 13, 2010

So, I needed to make a journal for my step-daughter-in-law for her birthday and figured she would use it for either taking notes at church or maybe bible study...whatever. So I made pretty covers (I'll post it next) and put put plenty of papers in it but thought I would try cutting a Jesus stencil for the first page to make it a little extra special. I cut my lil heart out for at least an hour, spraypainted the image and scurried downstairs to show Tom, he looked at it for a bit...then a bit longer, finally I asked him if he thought my painting could pass for Jesus - he said "Sure, nobody knows what he looks like anyway" GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Here he is:

He doesn't look like a Charles Manson does he?!? Does he look too intense?  Hmmm, maybe, and perhaps with good reason. 
Aggravated and yet always amused...................at the Shores

I think he looks AMAZING & I would never confuse him with CM. Lucky daughter-in-law!!!

He does NOT look like Charles Manson. His eyes are intense, not psycho! I think it looks great!

Thanks Susan & Amy, I decided to go with it!

I saw who it was at once. It looks like Robert Powell in Zeffirelli's "Jesus of Nazareth".

It just might be, Jenny. I did the stencil from a photo I got online
