Congratulations on your win! This is one of my favourite Bible stories and you have portrayed it very well. I'm not sure about making excuses for her sin, since Jesus didn't do so. But I absolutely love the way you paint HIM in contrast to the other leering men. Good job.

Melanie,

A beautiful and sensitive rendition of that amazing moment in the Temple.

As a soul of the masculine nature, I appreciate the feminine tone you placed in this scene.

Absolutely wondrous.

Thank you.
