Psalm 81 (December 2007)
28 1/4" x 26 3/4" - canvas banner
A figure leaps in the center of this banner which belongs to the promise pieces set within the series. Colors are arranged with their compliments as well as tints and shades of their hues as they fan out from the center of the painting. Bright colors to me often symbolize praise and joy and that is what I want to portray in Psalm 80. The circle grid, the rays coming from the center out and the position of the figure all draw the viewer to outer edges of the painting and beyond, hopefully challenging them to let praise flow from their whole being because God deserves it all.
