The following words from the prophet Isaiah, chapter 58:7-9a, called out to me as I sketched the portrait, "Hunger" ~

"Is this not the fast which I choose, . . .
Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless poor into the house;
When you see the naked, to cover them;
And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then your light will break out like the dawn,
And your recovery will speedily spring forth;
And your righteousness will go before you;
The glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
You will cry, and God will say, 'Here I am.' "
