Drawing on 100% toned rag paper in red, black and white chalk with highlights in oil.
Our emotions are seen in the “moods” of WATER: surging, rising and falling, turbulent, stormy or calm. Jesus speaks metaphorically of the transcendent nature of water as “springing up into everlasting life” where death to our ego nature flooded with its rivers of doubt, fear and desire may give way to a rebirth at the soul level, awakening an ocean of spiritual consciousness already deep inside us.
