Description Can you see the child sleeping in the background? The forehead is under the star, the nose is under the 2nd h in highest and the chin is under the g. This was not planned by me, but while collaging, I saw it and was so excited. The whole purpose of the wise men's travel was to find the child who was the Messiah! This original multimedia piece was done with collaging, acrylic, ink, and marker. The sky has song book music in the background to reflect the praise and celebration. The land has manipulated magazine pages and maps of the whole world integrated together to reflect of the wise men traveling a far distance and the fact that Jesus came for the whole world. The words are also music for celebration and the wise men have dictionary words to reflect their wisdom and knowledge.
Penny Pausch, Jonesboro Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I grew up way back in the hills of Missouri (U.S.). I was a country girl and loved every moment of it. My sister and I did not have many toys and so we played outside on trees and other things in the woods and learned to use our imagination. This has become an asset to me. I knew by the 5th grade that I wanted to be an artist more than anything else. I like to paint, sew, minipulate objects so that they are interesting, cook, and write poetry. One of my goals is to write a poetry book and illustrate it. I recently have gone back to college after 17 years of raising my children.
