Title: Tide
Size: 17 inches x 21 inches x 1.5 inches (Framed)
Date: July 2008
Medium: acrylic paint and watersoluble wax pastels on canvas.

Today we are faced with the threat of environmental destruction. Looking at the tide which follows the moon in rhythm each day I am reminded of the constancy of its cycle in spite of the harm done to its waters. So too we who have been given the task of tending creation can raise up to act, knowing that ultimately the earth depends on its Maker to sustain it in spite of our failure in our task. It is a piece of hope for the environment and a call for a nurturing humanity.
