Day Two Commission Horse Painting
30 x 30  inches Oil on Canvas. SOLD 

This day I began laying in the basic white layers on the body and could not wait to start the face. The Golden Rod Horse Painting had a hint of an eye but nothing truly there developed and the face seemed to be without expression.  Following the rhythm of the work to jazz tunes today, the face begins to take form on this commissioned horse painting.

Friends from Kansas were visiting this past weekend and on Sunday morning at breakfast before church, we shared the lighting of our first advent candle. (Terry and I light one each morning and share out advent and bible study together)  Gary, who was visiting with his wife Ruby, was preparing to teach a Sunday School lesson on Mary and Elizabeth. I had bought Ruby and I the newest book by Liz Curtis Higgs "The Women of Christmas."  He had decided Saturday night to start reading while they turned in for bed.  He shared with us at the table that when Mary went to visit Elizabeth she actually had to travel close to 100 miles.  I had no idea about this, and did not really take the time to map out where Mary was and where Elizabeth was. I did further research on the Internet and found this article on the trip. CLICK HERE.  Thinking about traveling on foot most likely and walking 85-100 miles from Nazareth to Judaea and being pregnant... no easy way around that one. Perhaps there is a slight translation lost with Luke on Mary got ready and hurried to Judea. 

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.
At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judaea,  where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth.  When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:38-41
