When Peter declares that Jesus is the Messiah, Jesus makes a beautiful promise to him. 

‘I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’ (Matthew 16.13-20)

I was thinking about this phrase and was inspired to paint this interaction. 

It’s messy, layered and splattered with paint to symbolise the coming of heaven to earth in the giving a key that holds great symbolism: 

The cross of Christ is the key to heaven.   

Please do get in contact if you would like to commision me to paint for you.
