additional exercise using all materials above
please be with me goes on
keeping in mind the ideas below generally but not imposing any actual shapes or patterns this time
letting the brush do the painting without trying to control it

the plan is…
n.3 Respect God, looking back at, doubling again
in Raw Sienna which to me represents religions, structures, framework
combined with n.3 and the trinity in particular Christian beliefs, God being called Jesus, the cross perhaps
symbolised by trees, while waving trees may show the way
knowing God, by any name or any symbol, to be our guide
though they form specific frameworks
so here the framework of a tree perhaps
there is Burnt Umber which looks like wood
so perhaps Raw Sienna is not what gives the framework but that which highlights it
n.10 valuing everything but not too much, try to live what you love whilst loving what you live
bare tree trunks
there is no green here
n.6 be tolerant, everything is dear to God, this is about detail
Rhodonite Genuine is artful beauty but here it is contained in details it seems
all can know the peace that comes from being part of God
it does not stand alone
it is a part of the Burnt Umber, part of the structure and perhaps also part of the highlighting
like a blushing sky
overall n.3 gives a mirroring, so very fluid, like a watery reflection perhaps
also Rhodonite feels strange to me in this context, so perhaps like a mirage
almost unreal
