Consider: Gloria Portrait

3 2013 I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Consider the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

‘And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

  1. Onesimus, given I’m hopeless with visual arts, I need to ask, is Gloria flattered? Have to say, from a philistine’s point of view, much of your output is visually attractive and I can see where you’re coming from.

    Maybe I should enrol in an art class, and one for diplomacy with our Foreign Office!

  2. She loves it and has hung the painting in the kitchen.
    She was the one responsible for the addition of the “eyelashes” to what was initially a random application of paint blobs. That gave me a direction for the painting.
