What an excellent painting, this part of a bigger piece?
Lisl: No - this is the entire piece, Ray
This is just beautiful! Where did you find it?
Lisl: I found this in a Church in Wales. It was part of a larger exhibition, and I took pictures of all of them
Kind of a strange but interesting painting.
Lisl: Certainly an unusual style, Michael

a religious painting - Jesus on the Lake Genezareth.
Lisl: Yes - that's it, Philine
Lovely painting. Perhaps the miraculous fishing of the Bible
Lisl: Yes - I believe that is what it depicts, Marie

I was on a boat in the Sea of Galilee just two weeks ago Lisl. I like this image.
Lisl: That must have pleased you so much to be there, Chad

Very interesting Lisl, it looks biblical..
Lisl: I believe it is this: The Miraculous Catch of Fish or more traditionally the Miraculous Draught of Fish/es, is either of two miracles attributed to Jesus in the Canonical gospels. The miracles are reported as taking place years apart from each other, but in both miracles apostles are fishing unsuccessfully in the Sea of Galilee when Jesus tells them to try one more cast of the net, at which they are rewarded with a great catch (or "draught", as in "haul" or "weight"wink. Either is thus sometimes called a "miraculous draught of fish" !Wiki)

Lisl: Merci, JP
I immediately knew the Bible story the minute I saw this, Lisl. How beautifully done by the artist...and the photographer.
Lisl: All credit to the artist, Ginnie!

I'm assuming that this is a religious painting? I like the bold colours.
Lisl: It depicts a Biblical story, Alan - please see my reply to Chris above

This is such an amazing painting, Lisl. I love the colours and the painter did well to visualize the "miraculous draught of fish"...
Lisl: Yes - I like the way he has depicted the fish
Wouah....superbe travail !!
Merci pour ce partage
Lisl: What a super painting, eh?
Jolie peinture de la mer et des bateaux.
Lisl: I thought it was really well painted, too

How interesting this looks ! A very good capture here !
Have a nice weekend Lisl smile)))
Devi smile
Lisl: Thank you, Devi - you too!
Like Ginnie I knew the story it illustrates straight away, I particularly like the way the wake of the boat is painted.
Lisl: Yes, I guessed you would, Brian - the depiction of the wake is very clever
Telling them to cast their nets on the other side. Flipping know-all grin
Lisl: Well, it worked, Bill
What a nice painting Elisabeth. The wake of the boat is lovely.
Lisl: It is so cleverly executed

What an interesting painting!
Lisl: It was one of about a dozen by the same artist. I plan to show more
what a beautiful painting of Christ walking out to the fishermen to calm the storm Lisl...
you find the greatest things for Boat Friday....petersmile
Lisl: Yes - it is lovely, Peter. And I always have my eyes open to everything. But sometimes I forget my camera!
An interesting, somewhat surreal, image.
Lisl: Yes, I found it quite striking
Instantly recognisable........a very pleasing image, Lis smile
Lisl: Many thanks, Martin
