The Art of Emily McPhie

The sweetly inspired portraits of women and children by Emily McPhie offer a window into her artistic education. As a child, her family often visited museums with their father, artist James C. Christensen. The solemn girl in Birdcage, for example, would look perfectly at home with a collection of early American paintings. Because of the strong family influence early in Emily’s life, her paintings focus on children, as well as women’s ability to bring balance to their lives. “Life, as they say, is not about the destination, but the journey. It’s about whimsy, about having fun with life and where it takes you.” And life with children is a precious gift. “It is an honor and our privilege to be their custodian for a time,” says McPhie.

Your Name is Safe in My Mouth

by Cassandra Barney

The rose has been used for centuries to convey messages without words. The Latin expression sub rosa (literally “under the rose”) means something told in secret, thus the rose has long been a symbol of confidentiality.

The woman here sits sub rosa. Your Name is Safe in My Mouth means that she will never speak badly of you. This is means more than simply your-secrets-are-her-secrets. This painting is about discovering the trust in love because having trust in a partner is invaluable. Nothing that will hurt the ones you love should come from your mouth. It is one way of honoring the people that you care about.

The flower she holds is the lily of the valley.  Some think this flower is referred to in Song of Songs: 2.1 ("…a lily among thorns"), concerning the idea that the true path is able to thrive in even the harshest environment.  This flower also carries with it the sentiment, "You will find happiness."  In either case, this woman’s relationship will thrive because she chooses to base it on honor and trust.
