I Am Not Afraid

Lyn Diefenbach

About the artist and artwork

The pursuit of masterly quality and technique is a high priority for internationally recognised pastellist, Lyn Diefenbach. She holds Master Pastellist status with the Pastel Society of Australia, and In 2014 was awarded Master Circle in the International Association of Pastel Societies.

Each of her paintings celebrates life, and her faith.

This portrait was in the back of Lyn’s mind for a decade before it came to life. Only recently did she feel confident enough to tackle it and was infused with the idea of it being ‘a painting for our time’.

‘I looked into the future and I saw the giants, but I was not afraid, for I am not alone…’

‘No matter who we are, we each have giants to face. Finish my sentence in your own way and find courage. I finish it with, For the Lord my God is with me. His faithfulness is to all generations.’
