After the Super Bowl, "Mary, Martha, and Jesus at Dinner (in Matisse's Red Room) was completed. Balancing the red room and blue accents of Matisse with the Biblical dinner was challenging fun. Hope the viewers will enjoy it!
So, "The Women with Jesus" series has portrayed the Woman at the Well at Van Gogh's "Starry, Starry Night," the Madonna and Child into Warhol's "print" type cubes, the Woman Bent Over and the Synagogue Leaders in Munch's "The Scream," Mary and Elizabeth in Picasso's cubism, and The Bleeding Woman and the Widow and her Last Mite into Seurat's pointalism. Now, I will attempt to put Jesus at dinner at Mary and Martha's house into Matisse's "Red Room." Here we go!

Finished just this afternoon, "Jesus, The Woman Bent Over, and the Leader of the Synagogue as Munch's 'The Screamer'" is number 11 of "The Woman with Jesus" series. It comes from Luke 13:10-17, with its style taken from Edward Munch's "The Screamer." It was great fun recreating the screaming figure's pose and expression. The woman's figure works to imply someone battling the crippling battle of arthritis and osteoporosis. It was also great fun creating the realistic effects that we all face as we age. I bet she wished she could have taken one-a-day Boniva!
I have completed my first diptych and gained back half of our living room and two card tables for Christmas Eve! It is a pointalism of the Widow's Mite, measuring 20"x 60," numbers 9 and 10 of "The Women with Jesus" series. And yes, Lisa Wolfe, I WILL one day move to women of the Hebrew bible!
