Original Mixed Media Watercolor, 2018 Framed (8” x 10”)
Painting is my window to the world; it’s my travel guide to outside of the walls I occupy all day and night. It’s the breath of fresh air my lungs crave, and it’s the fruit of using and re-working the color that I so desire to surround me. Painting brings me out of my shell, and provides a break from the gray and neutral colors of winter.
I recall a psalm:
“When my soul is in the dumps, I rehearse everything I know of you, From Jordan depths to Hermon heights, including Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep to the roar of your waterfall, Your breaking surf, your thundering breakers crash over me. Then GOD promises to love me all day, sing songs all through the night! My life is God’s prayer.” Psalm 42:6-8
