The Bread And Vine

oil 9x12 inches not for sale This may be one of my favorite paintings because of its content. I started reading that little brown Bible when I was sixteen. It has sentimental value and the best concordance too. I stuck my neck out putting in a picture of Jesus. I thought it might look cheesy, but being old and mounted on wood, I just might be able to pull it off. I think it fits with the feel of the work, but more importantly, it's crucial to the content. Without explaining away the piece, I'll just say I was thinking about all the scriptures in the Gospel of John linking Jesus, The Bread, The Vine and the Word of God.


  1. A masterful expression of your faith. Wonderful composition.

  2. I like it, too. Looks so old world and just asks for contemplation!

  3. Wonderful painting! Love how you tied everything together and used purple, the color of royalty, throughout.
