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 first paint shown below is titled Beguiling Eve, is 9″x12″ and done in pastel. Here I liked imagining her innocence, her calmly listening to the snake, only knowing beauty and love.
The second painting below is titled Pharaoh and the Frogs. It is 9″x12″ and done in pastel. I liked imagining Pharaoh as weak and exasperated with frogs jumping everywhere.
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.
These stories were fun to paint!
