The Ballad of the Cross

Rarely have I found music and images that marry so perfectly.  ~LTG

James J. Tissot (French painter and illustrator, 1836-1902) was a well-known French impressionist painter, who in his later years travelled twice to the Holy Land in order to produced a series of 700 accurate watercolor drawings to illustrate the Old and New Testaments — especially the life of Christ.    https://www.joyfulheart.com/easter/tissot-passion.htm

Replacing Hate with Love

In the spirit of the season, I removed the controversial post entitled “Why They Hate Us”  to replace it with something more in keeping with the season. 
In this case, I found a wonderful song and had to find images to do justice to the subject.  When you watch the video, remember the composer, Jed Santa Maria, is singing.  I believe the words to his song are truly inspired. 
The artwork by James Tissot (1836-1902) is from a 124 piece watercolor series he did on “The Life of Christ.”  More of his work can be found at the Brooklyn Museum website that held an exhibition of his work in 2009.
