The words on this submarine page read Connecting with our own human spirit will ultimately lead us into a relationship with the wisdom of the Universe…
This "Face of Wisdom" is my first attempt at and African-American face. I am pleased with how she turned out - tho' I might have worked more on layers and shading if it were on a canvas. I know I kept telling myself, to keep moving to meet the deadline, that "this is just a sketchbook; it doesn't have to be perfect"! Her words are excerpts from Proverbs 8:
Does not wisdom call, and understanding lift up her voice?
At the entrance of the doors she cries out – “Listen, for I will speak of noble things. Take my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than purest gold. “ For wisdom is better than jewels. All desirable things cannot compare with her.
I love those who love me, and those who diligently seek me will find me.
From everlasting I was established, from the beginning, from the earliest time of the earth.
Now, therefore people, listen to me, for blessed are they who keep my ways. Heed instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it, for he who finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord.
