He's the King

Recently, I made this:

It was inspired by my favorite quote from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
I love this because it is such a great reminder that God is omnipotent, completely and fully powerful and just. He is also Love, and fully good.

Love is not proud

The next part of the verse is "Love is not proud." I wanted to do a male peacock because they seem like proud creatures to me... and I just thought it would look cool. :)
This is definitely not my favorite... I still like my owl one the best. I am trying to decide if I should outline each feather with black like I did the body. Any thoughts?

Love is not proud: We all know the sting of someone else's prideful words, but we often don't notice when we ourselves are being prideful. After reading Matthew Henry's Commentary and Henry Drummond's The Greatest Thing in the World, I came to an interesting conclusion. Love forgets itself. Drummond describes humility as, "To put a seal upon your lips and forget what you have done." I cannot truly love when I love myself and my accomplishments more than others.

I will be joyful in God my Savior!

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
-Habakkuk 3:17-18-
