I echo Sara's enthusiasm for this painting. It is well designed with significant and understated symbolism. Poor handling of symbolism is a problem that most Christian artists share. Either the symbolism is so inane or not visually understood, that a complex title or a whole paragraph is needed in order for the artist's meaning to be conveyed, or the symbols are so obvious and simple that there is no new meaning contributed by the artist.

Often the whole content contribution of the artist is "here are a bunch of symbols that I want you to consider."

Your symbols and their placements invite contemplation and expanded meaning in this emotional and exuberant style.
