About "Deep Calls to Deep"

Deep calls unto deep.
Psalm 42:7.
IN the grandeur of Nature there are amazing harmonies. When the storm agitates the ocean below,
the heavens above hear the tumult, and answer to the clamor; down comes a deluge of sonorous hail or
swift-descending rain, attended with peals of thunder, and flashes of flame. Frequently the waterspout,
of which David speaks in the next sentence, evidences the sympathy of the two great waters above, and
beneath the firmament; the great deep above stretches out its hands to the great deep below, and in voice
of thunder their old relationship is recognized; it is almost as if the twin seas remembered how once they
lay together in the same cradle of confusion till the decree of the Eternal appointed each his bounds and

Deep calls unto deep one splendor of Creation holds fellowship with another. Amazed and
overwhelmed by the spectacle of some tremendous tempest upon land, you have yet been able to observe
how the clouds appear to be emptying themselves each into each, and the successive volleys of
Heaven's artillery are answered by rival clamors, the whole chorus of sublimities lifting up their voices!

It has seemed to me that a strange wild joy was moving all the elements, and that the angels of wind and
tempest were clapping their awful hands in glorious glee. Among the Alps, in the day of tempest, the
solemnly silent peaks break through their sacred quiet, and speak to each other in that dread language
which is echoing the voice of God

Far along,
From peak to peak the rattling crags among,
Leaps the live thunder!
Not from one lone cloud,
But every mountain now has found a tongue,
And Jura answers, through her misty shroud,
Back to the joyous Alps, who call to her aloud.

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
