For God So Loved the World

 The Art

I love the combination of Hovering Kestrel, Orange Tip and Copper butterflies, Dog Rose. The colours, blues and ochres work, well together. But there are aspects of the painting, specifically the Globe Earth and Space, I no longer believe in. Nevertheless, the concept of the Ichthys as a window on creation I still like. As a title page it has some merit. Maybe I will repaint it one day and redo the Earth more in keeping with what I believe rather than what "so called science" would have us believe.

The Ichthys

There are geometric patterns in this painting which consistently reappear throughout the art in this gallery. The Ichthys is based upon this pattern of inter-locking circles, seven of which will form a six petal flower. I am aware that the New Age Movement has hi-jacked this design for its own purposes, as it has every other pattern or design. These patterns appear quite obviously in God's creation so I make no apology for their use. I use it quite randomly in my art to tie various parts together. It has no meaning for me other than the Ichthys, a symbol of Christ as Creator. (The Word) And yes, I believe in creation, not evolution, which to me is a blatantly stupid invention.

All the art  in this Gallery was created using various brands of Acrylic paint on 140lb Fabriano Artistico Paper. 22* x 15* (Does not use animal products in the sizing) I used Rosemary & Co Brushes. (Synthetic) The calligraphy was done by hand using a brush and acrylic ink.
