Hand Of God closeup by Emberblue Hand Of God closeup by Emberblue
This is a closer image of my chalk drawing:Hand Of God by Emberblue

This is the Biblical text that the painting is illustrating:
Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”  And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:22-33

Indeed it was, lol!  And I know you understand because I've seen your work and can tell you put a lot of time into it too. :aww:  Yes, chalk on pavement is an interesting challenge.  But after a while you get the hang of it and adapt as needed. :D

I enjoy depictions of a more cheerful Christ, like this one.

Oh wow!  O_O  I didn't realize that this was done in chalk, at first!  Amazing!

Thank you!  I agree.  Maybe Jesus was indeed smiling when He looked down at Peter to help him. Who knows. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D

You never get to see him, he's a god who lives at the bottom of the sea, but it's kind of what I imagine he looks like :P
