That’s what she creates:
Psalm 27 has many contrasting elements throughout the chapter. Light and salvation versus fear and being afraid, battle versus victory. Confidence against opposing odds, and finding beauty in dark places. Therefore, I wanted my painting to show contrasting elements. Darkness in the forest is pierced through by bright rays of moonlight, dead and dying trees next to large, strong, living trees, and most importantly a small, girl enjoying the beauty of the moonlight on the waters. She is confident and not afraid though darkness surrounds her. The light of the moonlight, representing God’s light of salvation, is resting upon her, and she has found the “goodness of the Lord in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:14).
