Psalms 1 (July 2007)
16 1/2" x 39 1/2" - canvas banner
All-seeing, nourishing, and watchful are a few of the words that inspired the image of Psalm 1. After a two-month period of rest in creating art, I doodled the sketch for this banner. This began the Psalms Series in which all works were created in numerical order. After I sketched the first image, they seemed to come at a feverish pace fueled by passion and excitement that could only be found in my Savior. As I look at this first piece, now that the series is complete, I can’t help but be reminded that God saw the whole process and interacted with me during the creation of the 150 banners. He often times filled me and I left a “session” more energized than when I began. The natural colors of Psalm 1 represent creation and the blue moving through the center portrays the idea of water, symbolizing God as provider of all nourishment.
