This was initially commissioned for a Christian magazine, for an article called "Reaching for God's Smile." I wanted it to deal with spirituality, without being specific. A lot of my recent work had dealt with hands. It's such a complex form, and yet, I think, an elegant form.

These hands have a kind of calming effect. I do illustrations for business publications: it's conceptual, it hits the mark, but it doesn't really evoke a feeling. This was different. I've mixed these colors a million times, but this time I felt I really hit the values right, and it added a calmness and spiritual aspect to the piece. I was trying to have it speak to someone's soul, not really relating it to any one dogma.

Black or white, light or
dark, we all call this city
our home. We are one.
