Oil, 24 x 30 inch, These Walls Came Down © StGermain
Again, like a repeat of history, as in the story
of the Israelites freedom of the Egyptian Pharaoh
I showed a few weeks ago, this is another repeat
in this present time in how the walls of Jericho
are coming down when the shofars will blast
and “the Israelites” shout their victory cry.
It is said that satan lived on the moon.
The meaning of the word Jericho is moon!
Baby bones have been found in the walls.
These things may be a reason why the Israelites first
had to conquer this wicked city before they
could go on taking their promised land.
You would be excited too when you had to walk
seven days in a row around a city
before the victory would come to pass.
This painting was much work. Before I paint a well known
Biblical subject I usually look up stock images
to make sure my design and approach of the subject
will be different. There were not many images!
What is interesting is that is sometimes
more work to present something “messy!” But it
was worth the work, because yesterday I met
someone who fell in love with it and purchased
it while the paint was still drying:).
Some bright colors from San Diego to vy with the painting

It seems in Fall the deer are more visible.
When deer get used to you,
they dare to look at you (they always run away

I am in love with your painting. I understand why someone bought it quickly. The imagery dances in my mind. I hope all is well with you.
Carol, I know – have been neglecting my blog lately since I have been so busy with organizing workshops and scheduling artists for a new art dept. at our church. so, a long way to say – yes, things are great, just a little too busy:):)
That deer shot is lovely.
Thank you Lydia – they were just part of the neighborhood gang:)
That deer looks straight to the camera 😀
That means “I am not afraid of you:), ” which also means they eat all the flowers except for bulbs.

Some nice views there, the harbor, the deer. I have a soft spot for the hillside with the electric/communications towers. I feel like people overlook views like that.
Also, my WW 🙂
It’s a fun one!
Thank you Amanda! Communication towers have become a part of the landscape as well as of our lives:)
Thank you Colleen -it was worth the work:)
A great painting with an interesting footnote. The deer picture is delightful!
Thank you Keith, the deer were part of our daily lives in the North. Californian mountains:)
I love the photo of that curious deer!
That is different from the desert. Have seen rabbit, fox. possum, coyote, (not seen, but was there and mangled our fence gate) bear, and turkeys and deer often.
Thank you Jim!
These are beautiful photos.I like the flower and sky views.Glad you captured a deer.Thanks for sharing with us.
Happy I got to see your fun blog finally:)
I’m a sucker for harbor views and yours is wonderful!!
The one in San Diego is very visible, and fun to walk along the edges of it,
Love your nature photos.
