Sketch for a new drawing, the tiger, a symbol of being present in the moment, gratitude for the blessings that God is providing for us and finding joy in Him no matter our circumstances, but most of all it is representative of how God sees us today holy and blameless in His sight no matter what our past transgressions may have been through his grace and our faith in his Son. This piece was inspired by a parable I read in author Brennan Manning's book The Ragamuffin Gospel, where he references a story about a monk being pursued by a ferocious tiger. "The monk raced to the edge of a cliff, glanced back, and saw the growling tiger about to spring, The monk spotted a rope dangling over the edge of the cliff. He grabbed it and began shinnying down the side of the cliff out of the clutches of the tiger. Whew! Narrow escape. The monk then looked down and saw a quarry of jagged rocks five hundred feet below. He looked up and saw the tiger poised atop the cliff with bared claws. Just then, two mice began to nibble at the rope. What to do? The monk saw a strawberry within arm's reach, growing out of the face of the cliff. He plucked it, are it, and exclaimed, 'Yum! That's the bst strawberry I've ever tasted in my entire life!' If he had been preoccupied with the rock below (the future) or the tiger above (the past), he would have missed the Strawberry God was giving him in the present moment," illustrating the importance of living in the present moment (pg. 40).

Finished my first drawing of 2016. It was inspired by my trip to Teton National Park. I watched this fox bound in and out of the snow and was really inspired by its playful, whimsical, and free spirit. I am calling it Emmet Fox, named after the author of the book I am currently reading, The Sermon on the Mount, a detailed metaphysical analysis on this teaching of Jesus. In his analysis Fox writes, "the truth is that the whole of our life experiences is but the outer expression of our inner thoughts," something I meditated on while creating this piece of art, the patterns within the fox represent the inner working of a power greater than ourselves, that changes us from the inside out.
