“They Sewed Fig Leaves Together”
Genesis 3:1 through 7
From the tangled chaos of their sin, Adam and Eve felt their enormous guilt.
“Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’
The woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’
‘You will not surely die,’ the serpent said to the woman. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’
When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.”

Wonder why fig leaves were chosen!
That’s a good question, Kathy. I’ll ask David. Thanks.
There’s the fig leaves! Little did I know from my comment about yesterdays drawing that you had already painted the fig leaves. They are beautifully illustrated. Now I’m wondering what tomorrow’s drawing will be? the serpent? the cherubim and flaming sword? I am anxiously awaiting!
Sheila, You mean you haven’t guessed what my next painting subject will be? Thank you for the compliment about my art and your time to comment.
My exact words when I first saw this painting were “cool, cool so cool”, I love it, it’s beautiful. I love the branches.
