Feeling Like Noah

by sandihester

So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives.  All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds – everything that moves on the earth – came out of the ark, one kind after another.  Genesis 8:18-19

I feel like this after winter – like I’m coming out of the ark (aka my house) I’ve been cooped up in for months :).  It probably looked like spring to Noah too – everything would have been blooming after all the destruction.  What a sight it must have been.  I painted these Noah’s ark pictures a year or so ago.  I can’t take credit for their concept/design though – I got the idea straight from a Noah’s ark children’s book that is illustrated by Ivan Gatschev and is done in watercolor.  I love the paintings in the book so I tried painting them myself.
