This painting, "Where My Help Comes From" (24X48 inches, oil on canvas), was inspired by a view I caught on the Blue Ridge Parkway last summer. My husband and I were enjoying a stay at Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock. While he was in a business meeting, I took the opportunity to explore--one of my very favorite things to do! I drove the Parkway, stopping at various places and soaking up the beauty.
The title is from Psalm 121:, a song of ascents.:
"I lift up my eyes to the mountains--
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip--
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you--
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm--
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.."
