Wisdom

Long life is in her right hand;  in her left hand are riches and honor. Proverbs 3:16

Painting this picture was like going on an adventure with the Lord! I wanted to paint a snowy owl to represent wisdom. Whenever I envisioned the picture, I always saw the underside of the owl flying away and holding a jewel in each foot. I could see that the left jewel was blue – a sapphire. But, I could not see what color the right jewel was. I began the painting, and continued to seek the Lord on the meaning of the jewels. When I was about half way done the picture, the Lord showed me the verse Proverbs 3:16. This was my painting! I researched the sapphire and found that is one of the four most valued gemstones. I painted the right gemstone yellow to represent amber. Amber is formed from the resin of the tree – a perfect gemstone to represent life.
