Judith Beheading Holofernes


This is an old post. Just found it in drafts. Can't imagine why I didn't publish it... Written sometime last year:

I've always loved Caravaggio's Judith Beheading Holofernes. To me this piece has always stood for the hidden strength of women, for courage in the face of certain death, for faith in self and the belief that the Lord helps those who take the initiative.


Starting, I also knew I was biting off more than I could chew.

But if I don’t challenge myself, I’ll never improve. After a lot of time and effort and pain, I finally decided the piece was finished.

I hope you like it!
