"Hagar at the Well" Original Oil Painting
This painting was done as an illustration for the book, "Dear Divine Daughter" by Amber Corkin and Aubri Robinson. It represents Hagar, the handmaiden of Sarah given to Abraham as a wife when Sarah was unable to conceive. When Hagar was carrying Ishmael, she ran away when Sarah beat her. At a well an angel of the Lord appeared to Hagar promising her great blessings. Her son Ishmael would be the father of a great nation and she was to return to Abraham and Sarah.
