My favorite kind of commission... one where the client says essentially, "Paint me something".
This kind of image is almost a cliché... well, let's face it, it is a cliché... but for very good reason. What else does one really need? Food-wise, I mean.
Anyone blessed to have all these things at one time could scarcely demand much more.
The Psalm of the title reads in part;
You cause the grass to grow for the livestock, and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth; wine to gladden the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread to strengthen man's heart.
