Psalm 1 Acrylic

I got to do a project this last week with Acrylics. It was nice to use them again, but I definitely want to work on my technique with paint (acrylic and oil) and on controlling my color saturation! I think this painting got a little out of hand in that area.

The painting was inspired by Psalm 1. I should be doing more like this in the next few months. It'll be fun and a good experience.

Psalm 1
Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

I know you posted this a long time ago, but I really like it. I have a 5 1/2 month old son who's name is Asher because this is the first word in Hebrew of Psalm 1. I am looking for art inspired by this Psalm to give to my husband for father's day. I was wondering if you still have this would you sell?

Hi! What a wonderful gift idea for Father's Day! I do still have this painting...if you want to buy the original, it's available, but if you would like to save a bit of money, you can buy a print of the painting. You can buy a print on my website. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions! Thanks so much!!
