Artwork Description

'Musings, representations, times, brushstrokes -
This moment in time, this place, this crisis, this comment –
Like a drop from a bucket.
This drawing to the real thing.
This mountain, all mountains.
All mountains, all creation.
All creation to the one who made all.
Yet, he knows all by name.

“Do you not know? Do you not hear?    
Has it not been told you from the beginning?    
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? 
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,    
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,    
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;…
Lift up your eyes on high and see:    
who created these?
He who brings out their host by number,    
calling them all by name;
by the greatness of his might   
and because he is strong in power,    
not one is missing.”

Isaiah 40:21-26 (ESV)

Will you not look further than the mountain?'

Need to know: this original drawing requires framing behind glass.
