People Said

It’s been awhile. Come on in for a visit. Put your feet up. Here is a new painting for your perusal.

It’s been so long since I started this that I’ve lost the prebreen jpg – all that remains of the original is the head, collar and book of the reader, touched up a bit.

Upon first perusal of the prebreen, I noticed that the reader seemed a bit concerned bout what he was reading, as though he was reading something upsetting about himself. Of course if this book was the bible, then that would probably make him Satan. I titled the tome ‘Tell-All Bible Confidential’ Those who write these autobiographical exposes usually have an axe to grind, and God is no exception, his book being told from a particularly strong point of view.

The text here says’People Said He Resembled His Father! But Didn’t Share His Temper!’ Satan says,”Hmphh, I never said that!” Mother Nature says, “Tut, tut, no one believes autobiographies!”

According to the Bible, Angels are the sons of God, including the fallen ones, so Satan is also God’s son, albeit an extreme example of a black sheep. My point is Satan is more of the don’t get angry, get even type, while God always seems to be consumed by raging anger – not unlike Ranger Porter Ricks in the old ‘Flipper’ TV show, who was always punishing his sons Sandy and Bud for some minor rule infraction. I’m sure none of you get that one, you had to be there in the mid-sixties when there were 3 channels on TV and 2 of them were fuzzy.
