Studying the Creation story in Genesis I wanted to somehow capture the first verse where the earth is dark and void and the Spirit of God is hovering over the face of the waters. How to do that?
Here is my interpretation in art form. I pictured the Holy Spirit as a flame of fire. Often in the Bible fire has represented the presence of God. Remember Moses and the burning bush. Also on the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit appeared as tongues of fire on the people gathered in the Upper Room.
I was privileged to show my entire collection of the Creation Story last year at a local art gallery.
Since then I have painted this picture of the beginning of Creation for two others who have requested a copy.
I love painting seascapes and lighthouses but this series of Creation is probably my favorite.
