Wow, where has the year gone?? Last year at Rosh Hashanah I woke up with the dream in the morning seeing this small painting. For the ones who are not familiar with the Jewish feast days, Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, during this time they have also Yom Kippur, which is the day of atonement, in which they ask for forgiveness of the wrong done in the “old’ year and start with a new slate for the new.
For you who have known me longer, when painting I like to depict things of the past, recorded in the bible that are important even for us, non-jews. What I painted here, I had always imagined as a huge and grand event, the second coming of Jesus, who will come back to take his believers to their heavenly home.
Feel I should take, how I saw the dream, as a pointer as how to paint it (small). Some have argued, that it might seem to the ones who will be left behind, as something insignificant, for Christ will come as “in the blink of an eye.” So, in human time that’s one second at the most.
There are many opinions as to when this will take place, but I don’t want to go into that here, That it will happen is for sure, and I hope with all my heart, that you will be one of the ones in this painting!

Am still adjusting to our life in another state. What I do know
is Hubby will sorely miss this this door, since behind it everything
had a place. Now, he has to start finding a place all over again
for his tools.

In my new yard there are at the moment ten bushes along the fence with these and orang-y flowers. A Festive sight.
Too Early for dinner …

Love the mysteriousness of this sunset
