jana lamberti silk art barley

for the second summer in a row i was asked to do some paintings in conjunction with an event at my church. the piece above was one of two inspired by the book of ruth.  a lovely women emailed me and told me the most beautiful story of her parents and how this piece tells the story of them both. she bought the piece and is giving it to them for christmas. if only i could be in the room when she gives it to them…(if they like it!) ;)
