This piece is inspired by a scripture in the Gospel of Luke that is very special to me. I have been through a lot of abuse in my life and I really struggled with my self worth until God picked me up out of the muck. He taught me that I am more than the sum of my feelings, more than the feelings I run from and more than the feelings I chase. Each one of us is fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. He created us because it pleased him to do so. The bible says we are His masterpieces.

I used some reference photos for the flowers and the birds, but the composition is a work of my imagination. The colour in the photo is a little off, the background is a little more blue. I didn't end up having a blending solvent I trusted so I burnished the background with a blending pencil. This was my first coloured pencil work with prisma color and oil based pencils combined. I found it to be a very forgiving medium, but more work physically lol.

"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10 NLT

"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Luke 12:7 NIV

"Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" Matthew 6:25-27
