    Gallery:  Wrestling the Angel

    Art Title:  Wrestling the Angel

    Original art by Melanie Weidner
    Created June 2011 - 18 x 22 inches
    Watercolor, graphite, colored pencil on paper

    Statement:
    Commissioned by Kirsten Bohl as the cover for her upcoming book Not Until You Bless Me, an inspiring compilation of poetic commentary on sexuality and spirituality from Quakers across the theological and political spectrum. In this painting, my own figure represents the Biblical Jacob wrestling with the angel– but here the angel is blessing me as I’m dealing with my shadow and with opening up to my true, vibrant identity. Dedicated to all of us in our struggles for sacred authenticity and emergence.
