Acrylic painting The Woman at the Well by Henryk Siemiradzki by Denise Gracias

The Woman at the Well by Henryk Siemiradzki


This is a well-known painting. I changed it a little bit, basing the background on my memories of many trips to Israel.
This woman came to fetch water at a time when the other women were no longer there. Who was she avoiding? 

She is so dressed up just to get water. Who is she trying to impress?  

Yet, she speaks honestly to Jesus, not putting on a show. He does not judge her, but lifts up her spirits and dignity.

May this painting remind you in God's Eyes, you are already worthy and beautiful.
