Sophia “BlackSheep” (ink, watercolor, charcoal on paper, 8″x9″)

Purchase the original or a print of this Sophia drawing.

Our Sophia continues her journey. She’s found a companion like her, a black sheep.

I like the way she seems to be marching. She’s so confident. Bold! Defiant! Even if she is a black sheep, she takes that as a compliment. So she’s marching right out of darkness and into the light.

As usual by the light of the moon with the wind at her back.

    This is what this says to me:

    “Be confident in what you are doing even if you are being a rebel(according to some)and the view in front of you is limited. God has your back.

  • i like that very much kris!!

    I like that she is naked. When I introduce myself as, ‘On the left hand, I am a transsexual; on the right hand, a follower of Jesus’ – oh wow, you should see how many people in the group breathe easier.

    Oh, not the folks with the titles… Pastor , elder ….

    But just the regular people.

    More than once, congregants have told me ‘you are breath of fresh air’; ‘your honesty is fantastic; you really believe…’. The ‘nakedness’ I have is transparency of both my falls and my willingness to be used by Jesus, now… not later.

    So, I do like these Sophia drawings.

    Much love in Christ always and unconditionally; Caryn
