Psalm 60 (November 2007)

Technically, Psalm 60 was the most challenging to paint as it implores the use of alternating colors for each section of the grid. As one moves vertical up the work, one can see that with each arch, the set of colors changes. The first arch contains primary colors and the next, secondary colors. Then with each vertical line traveling up to the top, one can see the primary color and its compliment alternate. Within each of these are tints and shades of the various colors. In coming up with the image for this Psalm 60, I thought about God as our deliverer, sending His son to be our Savior. This is represented by the image of a cross hidden in the upper half of the work. I also incorporated an image of a sword, which is hidden underneath the cross representing Christ fighting for us. It was a reminder to me that God is strong, helping and delivering us if we choose to rest in his might and strength. Other words reminded me that He also does as He pleases, humbles, and disciplines for He knows what is best for me.
