"Bid Me Come Unto Thee"

As an accepted entry and Merit Award winner in the 10th International Art Competition for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this piece was on display in the Museum of Church History from October 2015-2016. It depicts the moment when the apostle Peter is taking his first steps onto the water and toward Jesus Christ. The storm is raging around him, as can been seen in the rough water and in the reflection on the ship deck's surface. In the center of the drawing are three geometric shapes. Under the ship is the square, often used to represent the four corners of the earth, or simply the earth. Toward the bottom of the drawing, closer to where Christ would be, is a circle, used to signify eternity as an eternal round. These meet in the middle of the drawing to demonstrate the joining of heaven and earth. This symbol can also be seen throughout the architecture of the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
