Do not covet.

here is a painting i did for a series on the 10 commandments at TNL. my artist statement can be found down below the photos.

A verse I found which really inspired the image for my art is Proverbs 14:30: “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” The objects were a tangible way to represent the covetous desires which are filling the heart with black and spilling over into the rest of the body. The idea of the rot being contained inside the body felt fitting due to the fact that coveting is perhaps the easiest commandment to break and conceal because only God knows the depths of your heart.
