The Father of Our Spirits (0.45х0.55m, canvas, oil, 2007) -

In Christian faith there is such a holiday as the “Day of John the Baptist’s Decapitation”.  Try hard as I would, I cannot accept this day as a holiday but, observing the people who come to visit the mass in the church, I saw that their faces shone with happiness.  I think that one should grieve and not rejoice.
Coming to the church on that day, in the sky I saw the vision of the Father of Our Spirits.  Apparently, I suffered with all my soul for the people and for John, which became the cause of his appearance.  He said: “Plant painted bean at the windows of Adam and Eve, and everything will be all right”.  I did not specifically contemplate about the fact that the church was the house of Adam and Eve.  But asking wise elderly ladies about that, I received the affirmative answer.  I complied with what I was commanded to do.  That church is situated near the Nikolskiy Bazaar.  The place, where I planted beans, nowadays is an asphalt-paved flowerbed.
The picture is entitled just like that – “The Father of Our Spirits”.  The dimensions of the picture are 0.45 m x 0.55 m.

The picture is sold and bears to new owners good luck in all beginnings
