Artist's Explanation of Original Watercolor "Enjoy the Journey" by Beverly Mangum
“For you shall go out in joy,
And be led forth in peace:
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth before you into singing,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
Isaiah 55:12

As I take time to really observe our world, I cannot help but sing with joy and clap my hands with glee for our beautiful world and for the Savior’s love for me!

“Be still [and look around you] and know that I am God…” Psalms 46:10.

God has spared no extravagance to attract our attention on our journey. I wanted this painting to lead the viewer to the Light of the Savior. The path reflects not only the seasons of each year but the various seasons in the lives of the sisters who walk there together….loving, laughing, and clasping one another’s hand to help each other along the way.

I pray we might be happy and walk together!
