Rae paints a portrait of her brother Colton looking at his reflection in a pool of water. Raised in a biracial family, Rae connected with James McBride’s memoir, The Color of Water. McBride found identity when his mother told him "God is the color of water" in response to his query whether God were black or white. The potential to become like God is present in all of His children. His image is reflected in our countenances.
