THERE IS ALWAYS ENOUGH – multi colored
Oil, 24 x 30 inch, Enough Oil, St. Germain
Heidi Baker, a remarkable small blond woman, originally from Laguna Niguel, the same suburb as where I have been painting before. She has a wild faith and left when she was young to go to Mozambique to look for orphans. She found 25000 at least. Several of my friends went there for a internship – to help, so these numbers are not exaggerated. Her motto is “there is always enough” like this widow in ancient times learned.
Her kids were going to be sold as slaves by her creditors. On the word of a prophet she poured the little oil she had, into all of her own jars and those of her neighbors. She involved her kids in this miracle, because they kept running back and forth to get the jars. There was so much oil in the end, that she could sell it and live off it.
When I saw the theme multi-colored, immediately this painting came to mind, because the concept multi=colored is not only about colors like red, blue, and yellow, but extends to a a multi number of situations and concepts.
