Four New Pastel Paintings of Old Testament Stories with Animals

Four New Pastel Paintings of Old Testament Stories with Animals

Daniel and the Lion's Den (pastel) by Polly Castor, paintings of Old Testament stories

The painting above, titled Daniel and the Lion’s Den is 12″x12″ and done in pastel. I liked imagining the light coming from above representing God’s presence, and Daniel’s own hair a bit like a mane, symbolizing his safe place in among fellow creatures of a shared Creator.

The last painting below is titled Jonah and the Whale. It is 9″x12″ and done in pastel. I liked imagining a self satisfied, child-like whale, pleased for being obedient to God, with Jonah surrounded by light within as he prayed for deliverance.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
