Rebuked Retribution by bryancollins Rebuked Retribution by bryancollins
11"x14" acrylic on canvas - SOLD

She is stepping out in faith, walking into peril but with total confidence. As long as she stays strong and continues in prayer, she will be unharmed. This piece is sort of a take on the story of Peter walking out on the water to meet Jesus. When Peter took his eyes off of Christ and looked down, he sank. Due to the recent political battles, it has become clear that people are placing their faith in the wrong places these days.

hmm...this is a very interesting concept you've got down here, i think you've managed to get it across really well though...i like how you've got the little sparks coming out of her hands so it's looks more magical i guess, the bridge falling down rather than just not being there at all is a eally nce touch...great stuff!

I wanted to bridge to symbolize her world collapsing from underneath her. Thanks for noticing the subtleties.
