About "The Writing is on the Wall"

This was a reworking of a life figure drawing that I created during a workshop at Firefly Studio with Pauline Gutter & Dina Grobler.

The changes that I made was inspired by both titled suggestions made by my beautiful followers (some of their suggestions is in the writing). As well as one of my favourite Bible verses - Isaiah 49:15

"See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me."

In the wall writing I added very subtle text which reflects some of God's feelings towards us. Maybe the most visible would be the little writing close to her shoulder on the right hand side that say "God loves you".

As a Christian, I have to constantly remind myself that I am who God says I am and not the world's value system which is broken :-)

About Liesel

Liesel Wessels

I am a fine artist, based in the Free State that specializes in classical realistic portrait drawings and paintings. I mostly work with mediums like oil, pencil, charcoal, and sometimes even with multimedia.

My work consists mostly of female subject matter as I love feminine and dainty details. My vision is to help people see the beauty in each woman (independent of race or culture). I believe that God made each of us unique, because he loves diversity and that we are all just flowers in God's Garden.

My goal is to become one of South Africa's top realistic portrait artist and I hope to improve my portraiture by learning as much as I can from old and contemporary portrait masters like John Singer Sargent and Daniel Gerhardz.

I do various portrait commission from baby portraits to wedding couples. You are welcome to contact me anytime for a free quote.
