Green Pastures, Still Waters

16" x 24”, oil

Artist Statement: "He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters." God leads us safely through stressful situations, as a shepherd cares for His sheep. Our wool grows heavy; we become weary of wandering helplessly on various paths. When we place our lives and will in the care of God, we have a shepherd to still our restless minds.

bio: Elizabeth Rose Scholder works at her home studio, and teaches painting, drawing, and other forms of art at Cocoa Beach library in Brevard County, FL. She creates commissioned pieces such as portraits, greeting cards, and wedding paper suites. Her main media is oil paint, and her favorite subject is people, and faces. She can bring a person to life on canvas, highlighting their inner beauty. The wedding paper suites consist of cards used from the engagement period to the thank you notes. They are little water colors strung together with a theme, text added graphically.

Whatever project she does is God-centered, her praying that it will give a sense of love and grace to the viewer. She draws inspiration from nature, God’s light, forever grateful that she can see cast shadows, the drama that comes from Him, alone. She is a vociferous reader, who also makes visualizations in paint, of literature--certain passages from the Bible, poetry of Robert Frost, lyrics by Springsteen, to name a few.
