On Wings of Eagles!
This is Isaish 40: 28-31 and you can guess by the illustration it is the passage about mounting up with wings as eagles. This has always been a special verse for me when I needed strength and since we have annually watched a pair of eagles build their nest and raise their young in a tree across the street, I found lots of symbolism in using the eagles. It also works as a piece that is a bit more masculine than some that I have done.
Doing these has been very interesting as I have played around with many media (on acid free boards); it is also a great exercise to imagine how to illustrate the verses with more modern symbols. I have done several in pastel but did this one in acrylic and graphite. There's a few more on my website http://www.cindymichaud.com/ if you are interested in seeing others.
OK, I'll be posting pies and cupcakes soon....
