My first faithart piece for the design team at New Heart .
Bible Verse challenge: "For this is what the LORD says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other." Isaiah 45:18
Gills Exposition gives this explanation: God himself, that formed the earth, and made it, he hath established it; the Saviour is God himself, truly and properly God, who has all the perfections of deity in him; and this appears as from his creation of the heavens, so from his forming, making and establishing the earth; he made the chaos of the earth out of nothing; he formed that chaos he made into a beautiful order, and prepared, as the last word (c) signifies, fitted, and furnished it with everything convenient for man and beast.
I wanted to show the explosion of color and beauty that God created for us, and tried a new technique too. I applied gesso for texture then used rubber cement. After spraying with bright Dylusions inks, rubbed off the cement and loved the look. It feels creative, happy & delightful- exactly what I was going for! God so loved us that he gave us the earth full of color, food, animals and trees!
I used my new fav white pen by Posca ( ordered from Amazon) to add the bible verse. Writes great on top of paint and ink.
Take time to pray for our country and celebrate this special day in US history- Independance day. I have joined with Anne Graham Lotz as she leads us in prayer for 7 days in the 7th month for our country. Won't you join us?
