Today I am going to show you my latest painting. There was a call for 100 female artists at one of our local universities that is doing an exhibition on a woman's perspective on women. I was fortunate to be asked to participate. 100 women were given a 6 x 6 canvas to create a work of art that represented how they see women. The timing for this could not have been better. My life was chaos at the time of the invitation with driving kids from one event to another, rehearsals for the singing group I'm in, choir practice at church, a big installation of art at my job, my boss got fired, my daughter was having trouble with her violin, I mean, you name it and it was happening. Thus, the inspiration for She Wears Many Hats, mixed media on canvas.
Proverbs 31:10 sets the stage - A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing food from afar.She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
We wear many hats - we love, cherish, heal, care, comfort, cook, create, nourish, guide and correct but above all we wear the crown as the princess of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
