A number of years ago I saw John Dubrow’s painting Rephidim. It inspired – eventually, after some gestation – this painting:
The work is titled Taming the Tongue, Study #2. The Dubrow work inspired this sketch, not the previous or subsequent works. After a while I manifested the idea in this work, but I have always been drawn to this small work and its connection to Rephidim. Learn more about that painting and John Dubrow himself here.
