Covered by the love of our Father. Take refuge under His wing. God’s love is all encompassing. He knows everything about us and loves us no matter what. God’s love is not based on merit, but complete devotion to his creation. Take refuge under His mighty wing. Feel the love of your father. Know that he is always available to you. Live under the warmth of his protective wing.
Psalm 36:7 KJV How excellent is thy loving kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
This painting took so many twists and turns before it ended up where it is today – bright and whimsical!
My original intention was to paint “Refuge” and I saw imagery of feathers and wings. I felt the safety of God’s sheltering wing. Before I started, I covered the entire surface with bible passages. I think I probably have at least 5 layers of paint and collage material on the final painting. My initial attempts left me frustrated because I did not see the message I meant to convey, so I continued the creative journey.
I titled this final version “Covered” as it is fitting that the basis for this painting are biblical truths that literally and figuratively cover the entire canvas surface. Scripture is the basis for being “covered”. The wings symbolize His security and protection as described in many bible verses. I chose to represent them in bright colors and patterns to be inspiring and uplifting!
Rooted in Truth
30" x 30"
Scripture was used in the roots and leaves.
Absolute truth comes from God. He is the author of it. When our life is deeply rooted in His Word, we base our decisions and beliefs on His inerrant counsel. We go to Him with life questions. He loves His creation dearly and wants the best for us. God has written this beautiful love story through the words of the Bible. When we root our existence in His truths, we can navigate this life based on His principles and are not hindered by the ever-changing world around us.
This tree depicts our deep-rooted life based on anointed biblical principles and nourished by living water. It is in our best interest to be grounded by God’s word. It is our anchor and foundation, guide, and counsel. Our leaves will never wither when drenched in living water.
Several scriptures were written on the canvas as a basis for this painting’s meaning.
Psalm1:3 The person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.
John 4:13-14 Jesus answered “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
Psalm 42:1 As a deer gets thirsty for streams of water, I truly am thirsty for you, my God.
Art created with the Father.
