Jesus Crucified

(Graphite on Bristle Board)

Some friends of Ed wanted to reassemble a 60-foot wooden sculpture of Jesus that an artist had produced years before and was now laying in pieces in the couple’s barn.  This sculpture was intended to stand on a proposed Religious Retreat the couple was planning to develop on their land.   They commissioned Ed to create a drawing that would show what the sculpture would look like when placed on a cross.

Ed used, as a reference, a small version of the Jesus sculpture that the late artist had also created.  The above drawing is Ed’s preliminary sketch.  The final work, which he gave to the couple, is a full-color drawing showing Jesus on a wooden cross.
