Person: Lou Ann Summers
My name is Lou Ann Summers. Brent and I have been married going on 40 years. I am a mother of four and grandmother of six. I am a self-taught painter, in the truest sense of the word amateur—meaning “for the joy of it”. I feel God’s joy as He works through me to create artwork of many various kinds.
Piece: Watercolor on Yupo
Yupo is a synthetic “paper” which does not absorb water but lets the water simply evaporate, leaving the paint.
Psalm 93 speaks about God being robed in majesty. I thought of the fact that He Himself made a perfect picture of this in the sky—the mighty sun, firmly surrounded by a robe of many colors. The Psalm also repeats the “lifting up” of the sea; its pounding breakers mightier than thunder. I think the thing that impressed me most when painting this was the endless variety of colors God made in one drop of water, let alone the breaking waves of the sea! Overwhelmingly beautiful! It makes my heart surge with joy!
