It is Finished

 This shows a progression of one  piece from the beginning to the end.

A question  often put to artists is , "How do you know when a painting is done?"  For me, I know it is finished when I am satisfied with it.  

When I got the idea to post several pictures of a cross in progress, I thought of the words Jesus spoke on the cross.  "It is finished."  and it hit me.  When Jesus spoke that it was like saying that God is satisfied with the work Jesus had done here on earth.  He had come to do what He was meant to do, and that was to overcome sin and death.  The sacrifice for our sins was complete and the work of redemption was done.
