Wade In The Water
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This large painting is on sand tells the story of a young slave girl, preparing to Wade on the Water, take a leap of faith, and run. In the moonlight we see supportive figures around her clapping in a Shout Ring. Her dress becomes one with the water as she enters. Making herself one with the night is her pathway to freedom. It is a moment of sorrow and joy. Slavery often meant departing from those you love under the worst of conditions. The "spots" are flecks of real gold leaf in the original, adding an otherworldly quality to the image.
