01/30/17. Acrylic on 18” x 24” canvas. Commissioned painting influenced by an old piece of mine. Definitely had to clean up some details and add more depth after this picture was taken.
“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.” Isaiah 40:26.
01/15/2017. Pen. On liminal spaces, or the space between two things, being and not. A gift for a friend who also found the subject interesting. Making this didn’t take enough effort for me to care about the fact that this picture is sideways.
This got me thinking about how God calls us to live on Earth as sort of a liminal space. We’re supposed to be in the world, but not of it. Living here until we reach glory. Sometimes that is seems fruitless or frustrating, but it reminds me of the open diner, where we find solace, and of the plane, where we know we are going somewhere better.
