My painting is influenced by Job 12:7-10. The bottom half of the painting is in greyscale, to contrast with the bright colours above. This is to show that Job doesn’t see the full wonders of the universe – only God can see because he is omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent. The man at the bottom is meant to be Job, and the river leads him to the Earth. I drew a plant, a dove and a turtle in reference to the old scripture: “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you” (Job 12:7-8).
