6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. 8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty.” who was, and is, and is to come.”
Today, I thought I’d share an in-process painting, along with some sketches for it… This piece is about the passage above, from Revelations. As I work, one of the most difficult things is figuring out how to get my point/expression across without repelling any viewers and/or overwhelming the formative structure of the piece. This one has been a STRUGGLE. I had a great idea, sketch and start to the piece last semester, but since then, haven’t been happy with the piece… until today. I worked about 4 hours or so on it this afternoon in the studio, and I think I’m back at a point where I can continue to move forward with the piece. I’m not going to bog you down with words this time–it’s all about the images, tonight! So enjoy! 🙂 and PLEASE leave feedback about the paintings, or questions.. whatever floats your boat!
peace love and art,
