Eymie Ortiz

Artist bio

My name is Eymie Ortiz, I have 20 years old, and I'm from Puerto Rico. I'm currently going to my third year of studying nursing. I consider myself to be a friendly and happy person. Since I was young, I've been interested in art and always found a way to be creative. I haven't taken art classes, I just learn from the internet and books. The artist that made me fall in love with art was Vincent Van Gogh, I admire his work. I don't consider myself to be an adept artist, but I enjoy painting; it's like my hobby.

Artist Statement

I enjoyed making this art, although it was a long process. I found it very interesting in reading the passage and playing with all the ideas that came to mind. It's always good to do what you love, and what better way to do it than having inspiration from God's words.

How it fits into contest

This painting fits into the topic in many ways. You can see how it shows the two hands of God, which means that he will lead your way and keep you safe. This expresses the passage number 10 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power." Then, we see the rocks that God's hands are holding, which represent the 10 Commandments; those are God's rules. There is a soldier that has on his armor and is ready to fight. This illustrates the passage number 11 "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." This one has the dove, which represents hope. Finally, we see how all this connects to fight the sins and share God's word to the world. This was inspired by the passage 13 "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand."


My uncle Neftalí and my aunt Rosa helped me understand the verses.
