Daily Sketch 30

EDM 250 - Draw something free.
The ultimate sacrifice was paid on the cross and freely given to humankind so that we can be right with God. The best freebie of all. Definitely something for which to be thankful during this Thanksgiving season.
Note: Some scholars believe that when a person was nailed to a cross that the nails were driven through the wrists because the hands could not support the weight of the body. That is why I depicted the crucifixion in this way (though I have depicted in the more familiar way in other pieces).

Drawn with Sharpie pen.

Thank you for taking the time to remind us about this season. Great words, work, and love. Yes, something so free for us, but costly for Him. Yet, given in love and joy. Great sketch.

Powerful image, David and wonderfully done. The best free gift ever...costs us nothing, and cost HIM everything.
