This work is a depiction of an approaching storm and a barren tree. From the start, however, I had in mind spiritual meaning. In Isaiah chapter 6, verses 1-5, we read of the prophet seeing God in His awesome holiness. His reaction, as he realized his true self before such power and righteousness, was “Woe is me, I am undone”.
The clouds and tree here reflect this realization. The dark, stormy clouds call to mind God’s holiness. The frail and lifeless tree, in the face of this, is a stark contrast.
I am too am undone, until I come to the Savior God provided. The unapproachable Almighty is near in the grace of Jesus Christ.
