Pastel - Pastel Study On Paper
True Treasure (All the Gold and Green) is a SEA pastel sketch for a painting in the Magdalen series by Dawn Richerson. The sketch portrays a young girl who carries in her heart recollections of The Teacher and how he brought her back to life once upon a time.
There is a sorrow etched in the lines of her face and her eyes, green with flecks of gold. Somewhere deep inside, she knows the joy is waiting to burst forth.
She knows she holds this treasure ("But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:7), but it feels so far away and long ago. She remembers so many cycles through time when the treasure has slipped from her frail hands and spilled out like a senseless river. She does not know if she has the strength to speak of it much less make sense of it here.
Weary, she wanders. Yet ever growing in her are all the memories of life. Green and gold, they always bring her back to the days when she did not walk alone.
This a pastel sketch for a future painting inspired by all my soul remembers and by all things that come to life here and now. Connect to your essential story of life with “True Treasure (Green and Gold)" from the Magdalen Series, Series 1—The Life Before. DawnRichersonArt.com
