"the offering"
It started out as rhubarb leaves and turned into this. My paintings are taking over more and more, to become what they want to be. It's a neat process. It's like a dance. Each move you make, requires another move to counter balance the move you made before. The painting is done when it balances out? I don't know.... You'll have to figure that out for yourself.

Now to get serious about this. It started out from the rhubarb plant like I said. I then started thinking of the garden and how a garden offers up it's delightful fruits and vegetables for us to eat. From there, I began to think how God offered Jesus to the world. That's why the title of this painting is not even capitalized. It's humble, like Jesus was. And he's still free for the taking from anyone who accepts the offer.
