"Shimmering Water" is an abstract painting that beautifully captures the tranquil and uplifting qualities of a seascape. Inspired by John 4:14, which speaks of the eternal life-giving water provided by God, the artwork conveys a sense of serenity and spiritual awakening. The composition primarily consists of circles rendered in bluish-gray and white, meticulously arranged to evoke the mesmerizing effect of light dancing and reflecting off the water's surface. The overlapping circles create a dynamic visual texture, simulating the movement and fluidity of shimmering water. The hues of bluish-gray and white blend harmoniously, generating a soothing and ethereal atmosphere.  The painting's overall ambiance exudes both relaxation and upliftment. Symbolically, "Shimmering Water" represents more than just a seascape. It embodies the spiritual significance of water, which serves as a metaphor for the divine presence and eternal life. The shimmering quality of the water signifies the transcendent nature of God's spirit, as described in Genesis 1:2, where the Spirit of God hovers over the waters.
