THE FINAL VEGEANCE - THE DEATH OF SAMSON
The final work...
I will replace this text when I finally have the wherewithal to write something poetic. But for now, this was the product of three week's work.
Painted the night of March 24th, 2012 - Samson...the only leader in the book of Judges whose birth was foretold by an angel and then basically led a life of selfishness and revenge. It claimed him in the end.
it could have been so much different...but no. All he wanted was revenge. That's all he got. He died with his enemies when, after being blinded, he was paraded in front of them like a trophy. He asked to be placed by the two stone pillars that supported the Philistine's arena and asked for one last gift of strength as an act of revenge. He was granted it....
