Often the canvas provides an opportunity for perspective, for focus, for contemplation. The enormity and power of the ocean in it's ferocity and infinite beauty fills the mind. Every color, reflection, glittering light on its swelling waves settles the soul. The explosion as water collides and thunders speaks of the rhythmic strength of the water that covers vast expanses of our beautiful world. The Christian bible recalls a moment when Jesus would calm the storm of the sea. His followers were in awe of this action. Later Jesus would willingly give up His life for them all. Even the waves obeyed Him. Yet he died for you and me. There is tremendous comfort and hope in that. So I present to you "Obedience" a reflection of enormity, strength, comfort and hope.
