The model for Wisdom is my grandmother. In this drawing the wrinkles of the weathered hands are evidence of the trials of life, as well as the faithfulness of God in bringing us safely through challenging times. The underlined verse is John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.’” A Remarque is a print where the artist adds detail after the printing of the original artwork. I added color to the bookmark using colored pencils and also added color to the lettering using pen. I also limited this print to 150 in number as opposed to the black and white printing of 1,000.
