The almond tree, in Hebrew thought, was known as, "The Waker" because out of all trees, it bloomed the earliest. This tree symbolizes an intercessor--one who "wakes up early" (hence, the sunrise) perceiving what is happening beneath the surface, and "wakes up early" perceiving what is to come. An Old Testament example of a prophetic intercessor is the prophet, Jeremiah. He was once asked by God to tell what he was seeing. Jeremiah answered, "an almond branch."
I created this watercolor and ink painting yesterday (7-5-08). It is a Jewish man wearing a tallite and blowing a shofar. These words are surrounding him, "Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm in my holy mountain," "He is coming," and "The King is coming." In the lower right corner, I drew a cross with abstract figures with their hands raised to heaven.

These two paintings and one charcoal sketch were created from my love for cats. This love began as a child when I received my very first cat, Chester. The instruction from Dad was that I could have ONE cat only and it would have to be a male. Much to everyone's surprise, a few months later "Chester" became "Chessie" when "he" had kittens...
