In the Garden

Acrylic 20”x30”  Mark 14:32-36

The figure of  a shepherd sitting with a lamb in his arms is silhouetted against the dawn. What looks like a lamb is held in his arms. The figure looks into the distance at the menacing clouds growling like a bear, tormenting him as though there is no defence. The shepherd twists slightly as though protecting this single sheep. The overall theme is from the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prays through the night, prays for his sheep, the disciples and prays that there could be another way. Nevertheless, here the shepherd is revealed as resolute and brave.
