This is the story of Melanie Brock. I first told her story at my first ever art show.
To view the entire presentation given at my first art show September 28, 2018, click here.
I painted this painting after hearing Bonnie's story of her beautiful daughter, Melanie:
After hearing her story, I went home and painted this giant canvas. The painting is called Beauty for Ashes, it's taller than I am, and here is the meaning:
The pure white canvas represents Melanie's innate virtue.
Isaiah 61 is written in black and white, a fact, on her heart.
The black "X" represents Melanie's battle with worthlessness.
The red cross represents the blood of Christ who exchanged beauty for ashes on Melanie's behalf.
The light source is Christ Himself & shines through Melanie's eye.
Melanie's direct eye contact is her realized virtue & beauty.
The words to Isaiah 61 are true for you as well. If you'd like help realizing your own innate value, please visit www.laneofroses.com/counseling and talk to someone today.
