The Psalm of David
Previous Next

The Psalm of David, found in the Bible in Psalm 23, is depicted here by sheep drinking from the Little Blitzen River as it flowed out of the mouth of the Little Blitzen Gorge in the Steens Mountain in Southeastern Oregon near Frenchglen. This 24 x 30 canvas was painted in 1963. Ina signed it in the lower right but did not date it. She had been told by other artists about this time that dating art works caused people to develop notions about the value based on the period of the artistís life in which it was painted. This is one of a handful of her 350 paintings that does not carry the date. The work was shown 10 times and sold to Lynette Blogg at LaPointe's in Salem on November 29, 1967. The current owner purchased the painting from Ms. Blogg in 1992.
