God's Grace

2" x 2 1/2", ink and gouache on hemp paper.

I painted this as a gift; the hiragana down the left says "Nancy", the kanji on the right says "God's grace" (the meaning of the name, supposedly).  The forget-me-not in the center is my signature.

I pray thee, cease thy counsel,
Which falls into mine ears as profitless
As water in a sieve:  give not me counsel;
Nor let no comforter delight mine ear
But such a one whose wrongs do suit with mine.
— William Shakespeare
Much Ado About Nothing, Act 5, Scene 1
