Psalms 18:1-3 (ANIV)
1 [For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord. He sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:]
I love you, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn  of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
Horn here symbolises strength.

This scene shows a strong tower or castle fortress on top of a sea cliff, with waves battering the rocky shoreline. I drew it in response to king David’s reference in verse 2 to God being his shield, horn & stronghold. I am pleased with the contrast between the browns used in the rocks and the blues used in the waves of the sea. I decided to use grey for the sky, with a hint of the rock brown to unify the scene.
