A quick colour pencil sketch inspired by Jesus walking on the water. I bought some new paints and canvas recently and am sketching ideas before putting the new supplies to work.
I pretty much accidentally gave Jesus what I recognise as my own hairstyle (wavy, boofy, with a sideswept and uncooperative fringe).
I’ll blame it on the fact that while I tried to draw it, my cat Riker was purring and rubbing his cheeks on my other hand. He’s not normally that affectionate so he took priority. (As shown here, with an awesome cat pencil case my sister gave me.)
"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. God Himself is not secure, having given man dominion over His works! Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Faith alone defends. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." -Helen Keller
