Artist's comment: "Where possible I like my paintings to have a happy ending. “Comfort those that Mourn” is the sequel to a sister painting entitled, “Jug not, that ye be not Jugged” which, by itself, did not have a happy ending. The jugs that went off with their spouts in the air got convicted of their nasty, judgmental attitudes, repented and came back to their former comrade. Now they gather to offer comfort, care and support. The “blanket”, a crocheted milk jug cover with the little glass beads round its edge, is one my mother used when I was a small boy. “Comfort those that mourn” is not a quote from the Beatitudes. The nearest I could find is, “Comfort them which are in any trouble” 2 Corinthians 1:4."
