Diva Challenge #114 – An Army of Stars

Here is my offering for Laura’s starry challenge.
I am recovering from yet another episode in hospital due to ovarian cyst complications – so I had all day to work on this today with no distractions.

I worked slowly, methodically, and deliberately drawing each stroke, then the next, then the next.
It was delightful, deeply soothing and healing. And I feel more calm, peaceful, centred than I have done in weeks. I can’t really explain it but God meets with me when I’m drawing.

The colouring-in was a bit of an afterthought, and happened almost in spite of me. I used a moist fine brush to apply colour from the tip of my watercolour pencils onto the drawing. It is a superb technique for colouring-in detail and again, it can only be done when one has All The Time In The World

The Bible verse comes from a passage that describes how infinitely great my God is, and yet how intimately he loves and cares for those He has made. One of my favourites ~ Isaiah 40:26. Check it out.
