Some Favorite Proverbs

This year is almost a memory... about time to post some favorites. These are 3 prints from my Proverbs series. The originals were painted on watercolor paper... acrylics and watercolors. Each one contains a scripture verse somewhere in the painting.

This first is "Wisdom... Search for it as for hidden treasure."

Besides the obvious meaning, at the time I painted this I was
starting to really believe that we all are like unique Treasure Boxes...
and if given a chance and opened, we are full of precious treasure. And in spite of the dangers--shark, poisonous Rockfish, stinging jellyfish,
giant octopus, etc--it is worth the journey to discover our true selves.

The next one has: "Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."

The baby bears are intently watching from the safety of their cave, as the Momma Bear is approaching a hive hanging from a dead snag, to get her prize: fresh honey.

And the last one says: "A friend loves at all times."

When I painted this, I was going through a very difficult time in my life and my marriage. I felt alone. Yet NOT alone. I experienced such friendship, hope, companionship and love from God... I discovered that when you feel that you have nothing left but God, you discover that God is enough. And then... He sent healing into our lives, and our relationship.
