Canvas 17 Blessed by Sarah Ritchie

Completed: 19 June 2011

Acrylic on canvas, 30.5 cm x 60.5 cm (12″ x 24″)

DEDICATION: For Elisabeth McKay. For your love of Israel – its land and people.

The Hebrew characters read “Blessed“, and the text on the painting reads:

Blessed are you, O Israel. Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord. Who is the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty

(The Bible, Deuteronomy 33:29)
