For her contribution to the Guest Artist gallery Shanay has chosen a pivotal moment in the film.  Br. Thomas’ epiphany where he sees for the first time nature in all it’s glory.

Shanay has captured the moment beautifully!

Thomas’ gaze moves our eye upward into swirling branches with shafts of light filtering through their jewel-like leaves, coming to rest finally on the dragonfly. . . gives me goosebumps just looking at it! 🙂

What could be better than staying up late and perusing your sketchbook by moonlight. . . with a dragonfly on your head? 🙂

Cole’s illustration of Br. Thomas brings out the monk’s childish nature.  From the look on Thomas’ face he has no idea that the sun set hours ago.

An Epic image from the Great White North!

For Chad’s Guest Artist contribution he chose to tell the entire story of Br. Thomas in an single epic image! 🙂

Judging from the glowing red clouds and sweeping landscape I’d say he’s settling in comfortably to his new Canadian surroundings.

Hi-fiven’ a dragonfly!

In classic Sarah Bodnar form, Br. Thomas has been transformed into pure child-like creativity!  I love the expression on both of their faces!  You can tell they’ve been up to something.  The only question is what???

Have they been out exploring nature when Br. Thomas should have been inside working? . . .or did they just TP the statues of the Church Fathers? 🙂

Gracie’s version of Br. Thomas shows the flustered monk, as usual, late for work and running past one of the Church Fathers with the blue Dragonfly in hot pursuit. In the film the statues never show signs of life, only perceived judgement and long shadows. I love that in Gracie’s version, it seems that the statue and the dragonfly have an understanding about Br. Thomas.
