Here is the other parable (or parable #1 from the earlier post) that is now complete. This one is based on the friend knocking in the night. Here is the scripture:
Luke 11; 5-10
5Then he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 6because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.’
7“Then the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 8I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man’s boldness[a] he will get up and give him as much as he needs.
9“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
This work was difficult to photograph as it is purposely dark (it’s night you know) and there are small figures and other items purposely hidden behind the grid. There is a dog, donkey, couple, fruit, St. John and an owl that you can find when you see it in person. The bottom of the piece has a series of bingo balls with various numbers (the title is a nod to them- try, try, again).
Once again this piece likely will be in a Parable exhibition that will be traveling out and about, and also may show up in the art show down at Bush Barn in May.
Keep on knocking! (-;
