One New Man Art Painting: Land and Sea

Land and Sea

Scriptures: “And God made the expanse of sky and separated the waters which were under yielding expanse from the waters which were above the expanse, and it was so.” (Genesis 1:7)

“God called the dry ground “land” and the gathered waters He called “seas”. And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:10)

“Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky.” (Genesis 2:19b)

“The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land.” (Psalm 95:5)

Moving away from abstract impressions of creation, to a more realistic style I used colour to tell the story.  Darkness for night, bright yellow for day, blue for sea, green and ochre suggesting land and vegetation.

White is used sparingly to suggest the shimmer of moonlight over the sea, and to highlight a landscape of hills in the dim background.

Frolicking sea life with birds on the wing as well as on land, gives ‘life’ to an otherwise inanimate landscape. Reminding me of the wonder that all of this incredible ‘matter’, is designed by God to sustain LIFE, in all its wonderful forms.

But with ONE overriding and particular purpose in His heart and mind, to make a viable space for humans to meet and commune with Him, each one individually and all together corporately together as One with Him our Father God.
