What do you get out of this?

Wow... interesting. I kind of like the stark quality created by the lack of color. The person in the foreground seems to be struggling -- it certainly doesn't look like s/he is finding it very easy to make the mountain move. Do the squiggles in the middle signify a crown of thorns? That's what it reminds me of. I wonder why it is there.

Incidentally, I really struggle with this verse. I don't really like it.

Looks like Anonymous has found your blog :-( I've been deleting so many of these spam comments in the last few months! I re-set my comments so that I have to approve any made on posts more than 3 days old, which makes it easier to reject before they even get posted. But there's always those few who get through and I have to physically remove them. Do you know how to do that? You should see a little garbage can by each comment. Click on the one you want to delete and a box will come up allowing you to do just that.

Anyway...
I agree with Karen. My first thought was that the person seems struggling. Struggling with her faith? It seemed to me as if it were more of an "I think I can, I think I can" attitude like the little engine who could. I'm sure that's not what they were aiming for, but that's my initial response.

Are the squigglies representing fissures in the rock?

I have no idea what the items in the lower right hand corner symbolize.

Again, lots of questions but at least some of it was obvious enough for even an art-challenged person like myself to "get". lol

P.S. Forgot to mention we had dinner with Mirta, Guillermo, Lorena and her husband tonight. Guillermo made a wonderful dinner (he's a chef now, you know) and absolutely gorgeous dessert (which I took photos of). Anyway, that's why I'm up and commenting so late. Just got home and I'm unwinding :-)

I think the stuff in the lower right is the sea, with saves and perhaps a rock. Isn't there one verse that says something about telling the mountain to go throw itself into the sea? That's what I thought it was.
