It is I, Be Not Afraid, by Rose Datoc Dall, 30x50 Signed Limited Edition Print
"It is I, Be Not Afraid" is an image of Christ walking on the water on the Sea of Galilee. “And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.” (Matthew 14:25-27)
In this painting the sea is a metaphor for vastness, tribulation, fear, and uncertainty, yet Christ is achieving the impossible, walking on water. The vantage point is very low almost as if the viewer, like Peter, is being engulfed by the water. But yet, Christ is the beacon in the dark, the source of calm and peace in all tribulation, through whom all things can be overcome and accomplished, even the seemingly impossible.
