Pilgrim's Progress: The Celestial City by DouglasRamsey Pilgrim's Progress: The Celestial City by DouglasRamsey
Acrylic on hardboard, 18” x 36”

It was everything that Hopeful could do to keep his brother’s head above water. Sometimes Christian, despite all Hopeful’s help, would slip down into the waters and rise up again half-dead. Hopeful continually tried to comfort him, saying, “Brother, I see the gate, and men standing by to receive us.”

 – John Bunyan, The Pilgrim’s Progress
