Wisdom is described as "supreme" in Proverbs 4:7
"Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom."






It all began two weeks ago, when I placed 4 canvases on 4 easels in my studio, drew a sketch of a young female figure on each canvas, pasted newspaper pieces to the surface and painted the ladies into being - all 4 at once. During the process, as each of them began to take on a personality of her own, I could not help it but fall into a relationship with each character. To me they were no ordinary bunch of ladies just representing beauty, sensuality and vanity. Each one matured into a “figure of speech” with a story to tell, a message to bring - of wisdom, significance and substance.

I could not say it any better than ― Nicholas SparksMessage in a Bottle:
But even though she was attractive, there was something else about her that caught his eye. She was intelligent, he could sense that right away, and confident, too, as if she were able to move through life on her own terms. To him, these were the things that really mattered. Without them, beauty was nothing.” 

The wise man, Solomon refers to wisdom as a 'she' and describes her attributes as, Deep Understanding, Safeguard, Discernment, Comprehension Of Truth which leads to Confidence,  Strong Self-Image, Healthy Self-Esteem, Whole-Person-Prosperity and Long Life. 

Words of Wisdom and Bequest of Beauty 
come together in 
"THE SUPREME QUARTET"


Garland of Grace

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get Wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get Understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor.
Proverbs 4:7-9

Generously Golden 

Blessed are those who find Wisdom, who gain Understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. 
Proverbs 3:13-16

Perpetual Pleasure 

Blessed are those who find Wisdom, who gain Understanding … Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed. 
Proverbs 3:13, 17-18 

Soulfully Sweet 

Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. 
Proverbs 24:13-14
