“Clothed in Dignity”


I have blogged about this painting before. I wrote about the process behind the original after I completed it and now I have prints of her so I figured I would show you some pictures of the prints and tell you how she got her title.

When I had completed this painting, it took me a long, long time to find a title I liked. I wanted something that evoked peace and beauty but wasn’t too cliche. I ended up taking “Clothed in Dignity” from Proverbs 31 (specifically verse 25).  For those of you who aren’t familiar with that chapter of the Bible, this is where we are introduced to the “virtuous woman.” She and women who live according to these guidelines are often called a “Proverbs 31 Woman.”  The Proverbs 31 woman is one of strength, wisdom and has peace with Her Lord.

Enjoy the photos!
