Oil, 24 x 24 inch, The Wine Press, © St Germain
If you were a grape, would you want to go
through the winepress?
Ouch! Happened to paint this 2 weeks before
the lockdown of the pandemic.
Had no idea like everyone else,
except for a handful hypersensitive prophets.
So, why did I paint this? There is a story
in the history of Israel when they were
in a war, someone was cleaning off
the chaff of wheat in a winepress. The latter, one would
normally do in the open field,
so this was a scaredy cat, as we say here.
Comparing this to the last few years, this painting
shows how it was to do
our work in an enclosed space,
like a courtyard. We kept our sorrows to ourselves,
because we did not want to complain
or share our fears.
It was a dark and scary time for most.
Not exactly what I wanted, and am sure
you did not either.
That whole period I held on to the promises of
Psalm 91, which was a great comfort.
You can look it up on the internet, to know that there
is nothing to fear, if you remain
in the shadow of his wings.
How do you do that? To live in someone’s shadow
you have to be and live very close to that person!
It took me a long time to understand that the son of God
actually wants a close personal relationship to
all who believe in him.
Not exactly what you want in a wall,
but in a ruin a hole is perfect, haha.
One Word Sun: hole
Deer were seen daily in and around our Californian yard.
They are okay if you leave them alone and visibly ignore them.
They like their privacy. Except for bulbs, they eat leaves and flowers!
Do NOT feed them, you rob them from self-sufficiency

A rose at a wall … here, it looks beautiful,
but to be a wall flower? Not exactly what one wants
