Lost Apostles

Lost Apostles

My son, fresh out of college with a major in literature, saw this painting and exclaimed, “Oh, isn’t this the way it is?  We always look over the backs of the colonists at the culture we’ve lost.”  A contractor friend of mine commented, “This is just like the local spiritual quest meetings when the fundamentalists and the new age people faced off.”  A songwriter friend said, “It’s a sad painting, portraying lost innocence.” The topic of intermingling cultures has always fascinated me.  There is so much to gain; there is so much to lose.
