One New Man Art Painting: Creation Stars

Creation Stars

Scriptures: “He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.” (Psalm 147:4)

“He who made the Pleiades and Orion, who turns midnight into dawn and darkens day into night, who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out over the face of the land, the Lord is his name.” (Amos 5:8)

“This is what the Lord says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that it’s waves roar, the Lord Almighty is His name.” (Jeremiah 31:35)

“Because creation itself, also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” (Romans 8:21)

“For behold, He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, who declares to man what His thought is, and makes the morning darkness, who treads the high places of the earth, the Lord God of Hosts is His name.” (Amos 4:13)

“He bowed the heavens also, and came down with darkness under His feet.” (Psalm 18:9)

I love the sense of excitement of not quite knowing how the painting will work out, it often feels like a wrestling match between thoughts and fleeting impressions, before something more concrete begins to take shape.

This painting is the second in a series of creation paintings, based on a ‘Wing’s theme, representing the Holy Spirit at work in creation. Using bright yellows and reds to dramatize a sense of energy and power released in the splitting of night and day.  

With great swooshing movements of paint across the canvas I imagined the creation of sun moon and stars in a momentous moment of power released by the wings of the Spirit of God brooding over the dark chaos.
