I know nothing about art, John. But I'll take a shot at it: surprise, sadness and joy?

Actually, it is not so much emotion as violence that I wish to express with this painting. It is part of a series of paintings of the cross, all of which are painted with violence. "The Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence and the violent bear it away."
