I find this trio of characters to be an effective description of myself. Some days I feel like the idealistic and worldly Mary sitting at the feet of God and simply happy to learn and share ideas with those around me. Some even better days I feel like the Master of universe as I teach, love, and heal the human race. Most days I feel like the bitchy Martha amidst a cacophony of "dontwanna" while picking up after others. I think that woman was right on telling Mary off. Yeah, that puts me at odds with Christ but I spend a fair amount of time at odds with him anyway; it kind of goes along with our relationship. I wonder what Martha's reaction was to being told off.
I like Jesus' left hand doing the awkward leg rub thing. I would like to imply more subtle body language when drawing but that would take actually doing figure study and not just landscape all the time.
