“The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom should I fear?
The Lord is my Life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid?”
Revelation 22: 1-5
“Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will look upon his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more, nor will they need light from lamp or sun, for the Lord God shall give them light, and they shall reign forever and ever.”
When I created this painting, I felt so close to the Lord. It felt like a prayer when you feel His calling: come closer!
This time I started the painting with the center, the light. Soon the painting emerged. Time went by quickly and as I studied the painting I knew it was time to put the brush down. Just a few little touches the next day and I knew it was finished.
To create a work of art one has to be truly alive and very still at the same time to capture a moment of thought. This moment you cannot repeat, what you see is what your spirit adds to line and color. Please take time to study the painting, so you see what your spirit sees.
In the words of Philip Guston (1930-1980)
“The painting is not on a surface, but on a plane which is imagined. It moves in a mind. It is not there physically at all. It is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is not what you see.”
In the words of Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863)
“The merit of a painting is undefinable…..in a word, it is what the spirit adds to color and line that appeals to the soul.”
John 12: 46, 47
“I came into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness. And if anyone hears my words and does not observe them, I do not condemn him, for I did not come to condemn the world but to save the world.”
I hope you enjoy my newest creation,
May God bless you and keep you,
