Psalm 44 (October 2007)
13 1/2" x 26 1/4" - canvas banner
I was taken by the image of God as my redeeming soldier in this Psalm. The One who loves me also defends me, fights for me, and shields me from the attacks of Satan and his entourage. In order to portray these ideas, I hid a soldier within the painting which holds a sword and a shield. I also included a crown and heart in oil pastel under the strategically placed greens and reds. If the viewer looks closely, he/she will see that the red also reiterates the heart form drawn beneath which represents the love that God has for each one of us.
