This is the painting that took such an age. It is currently hanging on the wall of a Jewish friend in London :o)

People have asked me if I wasnt sorry to give this up for sale and I can emphatically say, "no". I spent such a long time on it that to move on to something else was refreshing. When painting a picture like this, one is always aware of ones mood ...mood can change everything!!! Being a religious piece and one of this nature, oft surrounded by fictitious beliefs and controversy, in a way I felt pressurised in telling the 'truth' as far as possible in recreating something that would honour the Lord and not the jaundiced perceptions of man.
