The Lord is my Rock - Original Pastel Commission

The Lord is my Rock; an ever present help.
11" x 14" Original Pastel

This is a commission I have done for my childhood girlfriend, Lynette. Many years had gone by since we had seen or talked to each other but I found her (and her sister) last year on Facebook.  We met up and had a great reunion.  It has been wonderful to catch up with her - a real blessing.

Anyway she recently moved from Texas and bought a house and has been remodeling and decorating for several months now and had this place over her new fireplace that would be perfect for a painting.  She asked me if I'd be interested in doing an inspirational painting for her.  I was honored and excited about doing it.  She told me that Psalm 62 is very special to her and told me the wording she wanted . . .and this is the image I came up with. 

I hope you enjoy it Lynette for many years to come - can't wait to see it framed and hanging in your new home.

Psalm 62 (King James Version)
1Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

It's really nice, Karen, it has that 'heavenly' look, that works pretty well with the phrase.
It's a beautiful painting!
Lots of hugs,

She is going to love this Karen. Great choice for the verse

Thank you Carolina. If it looks "heavenly" then I guess it was a successful painting ;-)

Hi Gary - thank you so much.
