This is a painting done in a style akin to Georges Rouault or Emil Nolde who heavily influenced my art in college. The heavy black lines and rough impasto technique impart an emotional impact. There is action in the painting and a lone figure of Christ standing on the bow of the ship. The Apostles remain huddled against the wind and the waves of the storm. The sail has been drawn up and the oars are out.
