Feeding of the 5000

“It’s basically a bar pic without the bar. When I read this story in Sunday School lesson, that’s the picture that immediately came to mind. I made it grassy as to John 6:10 “…there was much grass in the place…”, I drew the “lad” as in v. 9 “there is a lad here which hath 5 barley loaves and 2 small fishes…” in the left foreground. They’re all sitting (v. 10: “Make the men sit down…”) Jesus and the disciples are distributing the loaves and fishes “to them that were set down” (v.11) It says Jesus distributed them to the disciples, who gave them to the people, but I’m sure he lent a hand too. Once I made sure all the basic facts were down. I started putting in all faces and situations: Uncle Creepy is there, and the drinking girl, and the cat.”
