Luke 19:5 (NLT)
When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.”
TIME OF DAY:
The time is not specified by the Bible text. I have set this scene in the late morning, as in Scene 01.
Sunlight from above illuminates the scene.
From left to right: Zacchaeus (up the tree), Jesus the Christ gesturing for him to come down, an un-named Hebrew man.
This scene has just been finished (Nov 2015) as 1 of 4 pictures for a local school. I was commissioned to produce 4 canvases that show the school values: Excellence, Respect, Inclusion & Aspiration. This scene depicts Inclusion, based on the story Jesus’ meeting with Zacchaeus in Luke chapter 19.
I decided to include a broad-tailed hummingbird (Selasphorus platycercus) for no particular reason! It is a medium-sized hummingbird, nearly 4 in (10 cm) in length & one of 7 species in the genus Selasphorus.
