The Glory of God


Rise up in splendor, Jerusalem! Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines upon you. See, darkness covers the earth, and thick clouds cover the peoples; but up you the LORD shines, and over you the LORD shines, and over you appears his glory. Nations shall walk by your light, and kings by your shining radiance. Raise your eyes and look about; they all gather and come to you; yours sons from afar, and your daughters in the arms of their nurses.
Then you shall be radiant at what you see, your heart shall throb and overflow, for the riches of the sea shall be emptied out before you. Caravans of camels shall fill you, dromedaries from Midian and Ephah; all from Sheba shall come bearing gold and frankincense, and proclaiming praises of the LORD.
--Is 60: 1-6

Paintings


I am a self-taught painter. That pretty much means I just do what I want. I've never taken any classes and I really have no idea what I'm doing. Sometimes that works to my advantage. Other times, it does not. 

This is a project I am working on. I really love trees. There will be a third one based in a sort of red color. I will update you all when all three are done. The yellow painting in this picture isn't all the way done yet.

So, comment if you want or ... if you could care less, then don't. 

Peace.
