In Painting the Psalms, artist Cherie Burbach shares original,
mixed-media paintings that contain a positive, faith-filled message.
Each painting contains inspiration from the Psalms in some way, through
the imagery, words, or emotion contained within the verses. Cherie uses a
variety of mediums and techniques to create art that is filled with
depth and whimsy. It is her hope that this book will inspire you to look
at the Psalms in a new way so you can celebrate your faith and believe
in the message. Some of the paintings were created during Cherie’s
popular “Painting the Psalms” series of ecourses, where she demonstrates
step-by-step progress from start to finish, including all the small
details that make mixed media paintings come alive with texture and


I started painting early on in life, but it wasn’t until a
few years ago that I connected my love of art with the appreciation I had for
the Psalms. The Psalms tell the story of God’s love in a different way than the
other books of the Bible do and speaks directly to the heart. Combining the
beauty in the words of the Psalms with art seemed like a long-overdue project
for me.

The Psalms have influenced my art in many ways and in this
book I share some of my favorite paintings and the emotion behind them. I have
included verses that stood out to me and sometimes I’ve painted the image that
the words call up for me while other times I’ve highlighted the words in the
painting. It is my hope that this collection of art and my reflections bless
and inspire you.
