I am still adding 'salt and pepper' to the surface and balancing things out. I have sent it to the collectors by images and I do believe we are about finished. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did doing it. I have another day left working on the sides and then waiting to varnish it.
Without expectations, this horse painting came to life with a strong spirit.
Extraordinary independent spirit.
Below are some verses from Luke describing the birth of the baby to Elizabeth. Remember that the father Zechariah was made mute by the Lord when he doubted what the Lord could do... so he carried around a tablet to communicate. When the baby was born everyone knew the proud parents would name him Zechariah after his father. They were older parents and this was obviously something extraordinary.
On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, but his mother spoke up and said, “No! He is to be called John.”
They said to her, “There is no one among your relatives who has that name.”
Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone’s astonishment he wrote, “His name is John.” Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God. All the neighbors were filled with awe, and throughout the hill country of Judea people were talking about all these things. Everyone who heard this wondered about it, asking, “What then is this child going to be?” For the Lord’s hand was with him. Luke 1: 57-66
