Jan. 18, 2008
These three paintings are done on bristol paper, in water color and ink and prismacolor pencils.
They are based on verses from the Book of Revelation and Mark.
The first one is, Mark 8:36
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
The second one is, Rev. 9:11 And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.
The verses are written around the figures in the paintings.
I have to go back to the gallery and get exact measurements, that won't be till next week. I don't get out much. LOL
This last one for today is, Rev 8:10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
8:11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
