Art of Matthew

I recently finished one and a half paintings for an exhibition entitled, "Art of Matthew". I say one and a half,  because somehow, I managed to spill paint on a painting that I had already completed. Talk about bad luck. Anyway, the exhibition is related to the Book of Matthew - the book in the Bible.

The first painting, entitled "If only..." is based on Matthew 9:21 - where the woman says to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed."

The second, which I felt related to this exhibition, is entitled "In Jobs We Trust". There is a passage in the Matthew that I feels goes well with the idea of this painting - Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other..."
