Out of Egypt I Called My Son

"Out of Egypt I Will Call My Son"
Matthew 2:14 & Hosea 11:1
by JAS
"When they* had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up" he said."take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you,
for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him."
So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet*:
"Out of Egypt I called my son"
* the wise men from the East
* the prophet Hosea 11:1
The Book of Matthew 2:13 & 14 (NIV)

This is my second watercolor about 11"x 8" on multimedia paper: JAS

I like the use of a greyscale effect in this watercolor. It reflects the world in a fallen state. Meanwhile, the contrast of color on the horizon evokes the Son, arising with healing on His wings; The Lord God, a sun and a shield. etc.

I like the use of greyscale in this watercolor, Aslan. It casts a shadow, such as was cast upon the human race at the fall . . .and yet, on the horizon, a glimpse of brilliant color, arising: Evoking thoughts of the Son arising with healing on His wings; the Lord God as a sun and a shield, etc.
