The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!” -John 12:12-13

I am a little late here, this page was made during Holy Week! Did you know “Hosanna” originally meant “save us?” As time went on, “hosanna” shifted from a plea to a praise.

The palm branches were drawn with a resist, green watercolor was painted on top of the resist, then the resist was removed. A few touch ups with watercolor, and finished the page by writing “hosanna.”
