Happy Birthday Leonardo!

This painting is a tribute to Leonardo da Vinci, whose Birthday it is today.

This is my interpretation of the Last Supper. Jesus washing the feet of the disciples.

“Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art” (Leonardo da Vinci)

The wonderful words below were written to this painting by Olga (thank you so much dear friend!):

John 13:2-14
Jesus’ act was both literal and symbolic.

First, the washing was an act of love and care.
Taking each foot into His hands, He carefully removed the dirt and the grime accumulated from walking across dusty lands with only sandals for protection from the elements.

As He bathed each foot, He brought cleanliness and comfort to those who served Him.
His actions also hold more than physical meaning. When he washed the Apostles’ feet, He became their servant.

As he poured the water over their skin, He purified them, cleansing His disciples of their sins.

As He used the towel around His waist to dry their feet, He wiped away any wrongdoings, giving them a new beginning.

When Jesus asked His followers to “wash one another’s feet,” He did not mean this in only just a literal sense. He asked His disciples to serve those most in need; to treat everyone as equals, and to bring the Good News to every person without discrimination.

Love and Light~OLGA

Bruce Combs 30 Jun 2009

I had to come back to see this again, Anneke, among your many beautiful, moving, inspiring paintings. How did you do the upper background, may I ask. It looks sort of like the thin wet paint being moved around -- is that a wash? I don't know the word. Did you with acrylic? I tried that once and have intended to some more but I've just been into thickness! And Olga's message is so appropriate! Someday will you tell me how to put sound with the photos? I'll pay you, or somehow make it worth your while. Much Peace, etc., Bruce

Artist Reply: Hi Bruce, nice to see you again! :) I didn't get an AW email notification of your message, therefore my late reply, for which I apologize. It went strange with the background, this painting was supposed to become an abstract when I started with it. But the paint (indeed acrylics) got a bit overly wet, so I patted it with a tissue, then the background came out like this. I liked it so I left it. Then suddenly I was inspired to paint the feet washing and thought it would be worth a try to paint it over the background. So everything on this painting is quite accidental as mostly on my work :). I will email you about the music, it would be too much to tell here, but I will gladly inform you out of friendship, no service in return required :). I still love Olga's description too, she knows so much about these things. Thanks for the visit and the kind words, dear friend.

John Cappello 18 Mar 2009

Ethan Vaughn 04 Jan 2009

allow me to say how powerful this portrait is. you've given the viewer so much in such few strokes of genius. i'm currently working on "A Samarathan woman & Jesus at the Well" i can only hope that it can say something as meaningful and powerful as this!

Artist Reply: Thank you very much for this great compliment, Ethan! I can't wait to see your new work! I just hopped over to your beautiful gallery, I see it's not yet there. I will keep an eye on it, it's a lovely theme!

DIANE CHILSON 21 Nov 2008

Anneke, there is a distinct tenderness in this work, it is very inspirational, and your passion shines through. I am touched by your representation of one of my most favorite readings.

Artist Reply: Diane, thank you very much for your very kind words to my painting.

David Gharibashvili 14 Nov 2008

Very interesting... I like your techique, simple, few colors, large brushstrokes (reminds me some of Picasso's early works) ... the theme and composition are very interesting too... I've got an impression, as if this is a detail of some bigger painting.

Artist Reply: David, thank you for the wonderful words to my painting! This is all it is, but you bring up a very good idea for the future. Maybe I could make a new one some day with all the others gathered around. :)

James Anderson 10 Aug 2008

Great painting! Yes, when the Apostles had been talking about who would be the greatest among them here Christ showed what greatness truly was. It was being the servant of others, even washing the feet of the one who he knew would betray him.

Artist Reply: I agree very much with you, James! Beautiful words again, for which I really thank you!

Greg Vilton 03 Aug 2008

David Holcombe 31 May 2008

We get an intimate picture of the event without identifying the subjects. That allows us to use our own imagination about the people involved. Imagination is a powerful force, indeed.

AVE HURLEY 11 May 2008

Since it is our feet that come in contact with the earth, washing each others feet symbolically is removing or forgiving our transgressions- sins 'outside' of the body...Jesus said whoever is greatest among you will be servant of all and demonstrated his words by humbling himself to wash out feet~ that which carries us to whereever we go and through whatwever we do.Jesus also is living water and we are refreshed by his sacrifice for us all. Out of him flows rivers of living waters, cleansing us from all unrighteousness of the days struggles.What a friend we have in Jesus who gave himself up for us all together and individually!! Praise God~ this is a wonderful painting and theme. The music is a wonderful addition as well~ GBU~! Ave

Artist Reply: I agree totally with your words, Olga is saying about the same and it's why I like this moment of the last supper so much. Thank you very much for your comment, Ave!

Excellent theme and subject, Happy birthday to the Great Artists of all the world, to Leonardo and every heart that etches or writes a line in hope to communicate. To all the children of the world, Happy Birthday. May we never forget that the true art is love, Christ set the way and lived the example. May we ever follow in his footsteps acting upon his every word in reverence for all those that inhabit the universe, animal, human or plant, etc. May we all live as Holy and be called as his Saints to be the artist he would have us to be. This is a wonderful work because it is the focus off truth and love. I admire your expression very much. Go with God. Sinseerly CB

Olga van Dijk 15 Apr 2008

Oh Anneke ... wat MOOI...... Beautiful and symbolic. This takes my breath away... John 13:2-14... Beautiful accompanying music with this awesome AWESOME painting (who plays and who's the composer? --Jesus’ act was both literal and symbolic. First, the washing was an act of love and care. Taking each foot into His hands, He carefully removed the dirt and the grime accumulated from walking across dusty lands with only sandals for protection from the elements. As He bathed each foot, He brought cleanliness and comfort to those who served Him. His actions also hold more than physical meaning. When he washed the Apostles’ feet, He became their servant. As he poured the water over their skin, He purified them, cleansing His disciples of their sins. As He used the towel around His waist to dry their feet, He wiped away any wrongdoings, giving them a new beginning. When Jesus asked His followers to “wash one another’s feet,” He did not mean this in only just a literal sense. He asked His disciples to serve those most in need; to treat everyone as equals, and to bring the Good News to every person without discrimination. Happy to see it as pic of the day... Love and Light~OLGA

Artist Reply: Dearest Olga, thank you so much for these wonderful words! Would you mind if I use them for my description? They are just my thoughts, but you can say it so much better than I can. I'm really happy that you like this, I value your opinion greatly! The music is played by Jim Brickman and is called 'Devotion'. :)
