Ruth and Naomi

"Where you go I will go.." 

Commissioned by my best friend Paul Clever in honor of his two wonderful girls with the same names. 

"Ruth embodies the three classic biblical categories of the vulnerable person; she is widow, sojourner, and orphan-by-choice, having left her birth family to accompany Naomi to a foreign land, a small rural town (Bethlehem) where a Moabite woman would be viewed with suspicion. She is a model for me of someone who crosses borders for the sake of life — borders both literal and figurative, as she acts in unconventional and selfless ways to create a new community out of a situation of profound loss." ~ Ellen Davis
