My newly completed painting; Adam and Eve

   I have finished my painting Adam and Eve, Acrylic on panel, 18"x24"   This piece is my interpretation of the classic creation story. I see creation as not about two humans but about the biosphere as a whole. Adam and Eve are not jut two individuals, they represent different energies coming together to create life as we know it. "God" is an observer of creation not a judge of who has "sinned".  One of the most challenging parts of the painting was copying part of Genesis written in Hebrew text along the sides of the piece. I only undertook this because I knew my husband could proof read the hebrew.  I do feel a responsibility when copying someone else's holy text, so I did my best to be accurate.
