Genesis 9:11 painting #2

This is my second painting following the same idea and theme as the one posted yesterday

And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
Genesis 9:11
Through lent we hear a lot about covenants. This piece is inspired by the symbol of a rainbow as a sign of Gods covenant with man that he never again will flood the earth. The flowers were drawn on a rainbow colored scrapbook paper. The blue in the painted flowers stands in for water. The dove (which in Genesis carried an olive leaf back to Noah) is an echo of the symbol of the rainbow. A collage image of Saint Therese the little flower is also included. She is my confirmation patron Saint.
