Dead Fly 98 The Last Supper

Dead Fly 98 The Last Supper
oil on canvas 8" x 10"

     Here is a Dead Fly painting I did in early 2020 before Covid hit. I wanted this to be themed for the Lenten/Easter season. I had an image in my mind of the last supper and figured that in a natural setting there probably would have been flies in the room. At first I was going to do the usual golden chalice for the wine but after thinking about it figured Jesus wouldn't have had a gold jewel encrusted chalice. Although he was special I doubt they had really fancy dinner ware. It seemed glass would be a better choice. I also like to think of this painting as "what Jesus saw." You can interpret this however you please.
