“Washing Feet” is a recent and poignant offering from New Zealand artist Martha Mitchell.
“This painting has been done for “Reflections on Easter”, an exhibition in Birkenhead, Auckland. The exhibition is based on the stations to the cross, I have painted this painting for station 3: Jesus washing the disciples feet.” (Martha Mitchell)
One thing I love about Martha’s work (apart from her obvious skill) is the way that each painting tells a story and/or evokes emotion and contemplation. You can see one of Martha’s earlier works (“Lighthouse in a Storm“) on a previous blog post. You can also check out her website for some more visual feasting.
