One sunday I heard the story in the Gospel of St Luke (which is repeated in other Gospels) of the woman with the issue of blood for many years – she was healed by touching the hem of Christ’s robe after years of searching for a cure. She didn’t even touch His body – just the ‘fringe’ or hem of his robe.
The faith of this woman – deeply simple but unshakeable – inspired me to create this work. I wanted to keep it absolutely simple but at the same time, my work in the Byzantine tradition shaped how I drew and then painted the important second when this miracle occurred.
Egg tempera on khadi paper, this work will arrive safely packed flat by recorded first class post. I can add my initials to the corner if requested.
