Oil, 24 x 30 inch, Little Boys Lunch, © St Germain
This is the original painting. The couple who bought this painting
requested I paint a partial bag over the fish and the bread,
which I did,
because it would not change the meaning.
The meaning of what happened then
was that a 10 year old boy offered his lunch,
5 breads and 2 fish, when the friends of Jesus
did not know what to do, when He instructed them
“YOU give them something to eat!” He had given them
the example before in providing food for big crowds of people.
This part of Jesus I have liked more and more, with
the passing of years. Not only did he have killer one-liners,
like – love your neighbor as yourself –
but he took care of daily needs all who listened to him.
Who else, who have attracted multitudes has done the same?!
Happy Birthday Boo (5th grandchild) last week!
Serendipitously with the painting above, Boo
would have been someone to walk up to adults and say
“Hey, I have some lunch – you can have it!”
For a reflection of the wall of Sutro Bath in San Francisco,
our big boy (6’4″):) Yesterday he told
us on Skype that the day before someone
broke into their apartment in The Hague (Netherlands)
and stole some big items of another tenant and he.
He told us, “I used to come and feel this is home.
Now I don’t feel that anymore .”
Luckily the insurance will cover some of the loss.
The definition of “plain”: “a large flat area with a few trees on it”
This is somewhere on the long stretch called The Grapevine,
between Los Angeles and Sacramento.
One Word Sun
Hard to choose, whether like the dusty plain above more,
or this rugged wall -both have its charm.
The bales of hay appeared very late last year …
but this CLOUD!
