Description I painted this bird while teaching painting with my art students. I felt like it needed more and so I added some of my words. Around the bird it says, 'One cannot deny that nature itself with all its colorful beauty and intricate detail could not have just appeared on its own but must have been designed. Man can spend all his days trying to understand the amazing things within his environment buy only God understands the depth of it because He is the designer.' I also added scripture the red breast of the bird. It says, 'For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Hebrews 3:4 NIV. '
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.
