Road to Emmaus (painting in progress)

This large 24" x 48" painting is a departure from what I normally do and is getting close to completion. It is for the church I attend and will be placed in the foyer in a cafe area they have named Emmaus. The story of Emmaus is when Jesus joins two disciples on the road to Emmaus, which is a desert town roughly 30 miles from Jerusalem. The disciples do not recognize the man as Jesus until later in the evening when they broke bread at one of their homes. Jesus then vanished and the disciples went to spread the good news.
