Description This is a watercolor painting of a person (painted in earth color because that is what we are made of-earth) looking up into the heavens as if seeking God. This looks as though it is a landscape of a possible garden. In the Bible that is where most of the prayer mentioned takes place is in a garden. In this painting is also the scripture of Isaiah 26:3 which says, 'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.' What a wonderful reminder of what God will do if we keep our mind, heart and soul on Him! There are many geometric shapes which imply a different way of thinking. It is like a get-a-way place to gather thoughts that the world tries to crowd out. To see or buy some of my original art go to PjCreates.etsy.com.
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.
