The Power of Water
Water is a powerful force. When I stand on a beach or at the edge of the river, I can see that the water is moving, but what strikes awe into the depths of my soul is feeling that the motion I see on the surface is just evidence of the power below it. An ocean swells up from the depths, the river that runs just yards from my house is raw power poured many feet deep, charging through the valley. I looked to William Turner for this exploration today, and this painting of water,clouds, birds, and man-made things in relentless motion.
