Two weeks ago, on Trinity Sunday, I wanted to sketch something that commemorated the day. I decided on three circles--not exactly original, but I went ahead. I came up with this image, before I ran out of time:
I hadn't thought that I would return to it. When my spouse recognized it as the Trinity, I thought that maybe I had been too quick to dismiss it. He suggested that I use the colors to do something with the background, the white space.
I wanted something that suggested movement and breath for the background. I think I did that, but I'm not crazy about the colors--they look too much like festive picnicware--but maybe that's not such a bad image for God.
We had a baptism on Trinity Sunday. I much prefer that image that I sketched.
Does this baptism image tell us about the Trinity?
feeling the feelings…
