Gethsemane
Gethsemane oil painting

Inspiration for the painting: This painting is inspired by the Biblical story of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane at the darkest, hour... Yet closer to the human experience than at any other time... The endurance of such extreme stress where one would sweat great drops of blood, there is only one word to describe this new emotion of such extreme duress: Gethsemane



Poem:

All balance,
To the burner,

Earth,
Wind,
Fire,
Water

Together create,
Peace,
Tranquility,

Go to that place,
Sit in silence,
Clairity


(Keenan Moon, 2008)
