The initial drawing for this long, vertical painting was based on a wood panel carving from 1132 on the doors of Saint Sabina in Rome. I was excited by how the eye of the viewer is directed by the artist’s composition. There are lines of motion and countering diagonals directing the viewer’s sight, indicated by the outstretched arms of Elisha reaching to the chariot, and moving our eyes upwards within the tall narrow frame.

Using the forms from my sketchbook drawings and memory of the doors, I developed a brilliant range of color gradations using a pointillistic technique of multiple dots of carefully placed color.
