For God So Loved the World

 The Art
The Yellow Hammer at the height of its glory is almost canary like in colours. In fact, many unwittingly think a caged bird has escaped when they see one. In days gone by it was locally referred to as a "Bessie Bunting" because this term was also used to describe a particularly beautiful woman. How times change! The little cameo silhouette are the same shire horses and Amish gentleman I painted earlier, only now he has finished his field and is about to retire for his tea. Harvest mice are really cute, hardly bigger than an old penny. 

The Scripture
Jesus was using a play on words here. He was talking about people. You and I.
