What was your inspiration? I needed a project for painting class an found these 3 small wooden crosses at Hobby Lobby. The largest cross is love because the greatest of these is love. Love's heart comes from an old painting of Jesus that shows his heart for mankind. Faith is the dove of the Holy Spirit. Hope I took the inspiration from the old churches in Germany, Hope is our anchor in both the storms of life and in our future. Hope was always represented by anchors in the church artwork even inland because even people who could not read understood the importance of an anchor.
