With this series, I played with the concept of biblical terms having been frequently used as girls’ names in the “old days”. I searched for girls that would physically express their names, literally jumping with joy when each girl was found. I did not know at the time, but these three names are indeed The Divine Virtues. I found the fitting Bible verse translation in the little silver edged King James Bible my parents gave me:
„And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
1 Cor 13:13
A special thanks to Meg Heimovics, “Charity,” and Kris Camealy, “Faith,” for letting me use their photos (and photographic skills!) and portray their children. “Hope” is one of my first oil paintings and is based on a magazine advertisement. I wish in no way to infringe on any copyrights but no longer know from whom I could seek permission. If anyone knows whom I should contact, please let me know.
