WIP: Bibi



Here is my work in progress, "Bibi".  From yesterday's colored pencil sketch, I added watercolors and copic markers.

As I shared yesterday, "Bibi" is an East African female name meaning "daughter of a king."  Instead of a crown, Bibi is wearing a turban and carrying some cloth.  And so it is with us who see ourselves as daughters of a King.  Although our crown is invisible, as we go about our daily lives, we can have confidence and rejoice in the knowledge of our identity.

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1John 3:1


I'm linking up with Paint Party FridayStudio Sneak Peek and Show and Tell Saturday!

I agree to be a child of God is to wear an invisible crown but we must be the best example we can be as we are responsible for our fathers name.

This is a beautiful painting loving the language and what it meant thank you for sharing Dxx

Neet said...

Oh Peggy - thanks for commenting on my blog and I can fully understand your grief at losing Watson. I would be just the same should Spencer ever stray. He was given to me by a friend many years ago and it started out as a bit of fun but now has become part of my holiday to take him with me. How can one get so attached to a bear?
