My Favourite Scripture

How is it possible that colouring could take so much time and actually it doesn't look like Mona Lisa or Night Watch what ever you do?




The sentiment is probably my favourite Scripture, it is Psalm 8:3-4, this is very special to me. Years ago we drove to Northern Finland, continued to Norway and if you now look at the map, it is marked with A.
I was sitting on the rocks and looking at the Arctic Sea and I remember how beautiful it was, how peaceful. This scripture is how I felt. So small and humble in front of something so great and wonderful.

  2. I love that scripture. I've also seen some awesome places, like Niagra Falls and as you say, it makes me feel so small. I love your coloring, we're our own worst critics. But I do understand when things don't look quite how you want them to. Love, dj
