The great Athanasius (296–373) said, “....[the Psalms] embrace the whole life of man, the affections of his mind, and the motions of his soul..... he can select a psalm suited to every occasion, and will find that they were written for him.”  I tend to agree with him.


Enjoyed making the backdrop and foreground props for these images.  It was lovely and sunny this morning and I was able to paint them outdoors in the fresh air and allow them to dry.  Couldn't wait to try them out.  I'm hoping to make some more prop backgrounds to use in my still life soon, but loving the effect of these meantime.
