Discoveries in Books

Charcoal & Pastel on Paper (264mm x 464mm), 2018
The study of Church History, has enlightened me not only about milestones along our timeline, but it has allowed me familiarize myself with defensive heroes of the Christian faith. To be inspired to imitate, while drinking from their deep wells of biblical wisdom. Hence; I micro-poetically express more profound, and synchronous with an emphasized use of space that is held in a gentle balance by the duo symbolizing past and present tenses:
"Discoveries in books;
To bathe in the kinship of strangers.
To quote liberally,
Not to impress, but to imbibe!"
