I hope you continue to inspire those who see your work, ..keep doing these!! ..and a big congratulations on your sale!!

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you, Richard. I really enjoyed the whole process of these types of paintings. My family modeled for me. They were so helpful. There are many more of these to come. I had asked a few friends the question, "What does mercy mean to you?" I got lots of great answers, but the one that struck me as the best answer was the friend who said, "Mercy is taking the place of the man who is convicted of a crime. Giving him your freedom." It got me on a search to find something more than being a good Samaritan. The story of the good Samaritan is a good story, but it doesn't capture mercy in the way I wanted to capture it. After reading, and being totally shocked, about a current story of a young woman being stoned to death by a group of men http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=woman+stoned+for+loving+the+wrong+man&FORM=VIRE3#view=detail&mid=6F79A415AA3497A43D306F79A415AA3497A43D30) because of forbidden love (couldn't believe that people still stone people). It brought this story in the Bible to mind. It fit perfectly.

This is so heavy with emotion as she clutches her garment ..reminded of the Pieter Bruegel painting "Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultry".. (v/f)

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you for your comment, Richard. I had to look up that image to see for myself. I wasn't aware of that painting until you mentioned it. They do have similarities.
