Painting “Shimmering Solitude,” step 1

Shimmering Solitude, 6x6, sketch

My new 6×6 painting, “Shimmering Solitude,” begins as a sketch on canvas.

Step 1

This is the initial sketch on a 6-inch by 6-inch canvas. I decided to use the grid method to place the commercial boat on the 6 inch by 6 inch canvas.

The painting will depict a working boat, docked at the end of the day after a productive day on the job, providing jobs and food for their families and customers.

The wonder of eternity

I gaze at God’s creation, the setting sun, the billowing clouds, and I start to believe that what I am seeing will never vanish. Always has been there, always will be there. My soul settles down deep into introspection, and travels even deeper into the wonder of eternity.

Then I realize that, as majestic as this scene is, it is nothing compared to what God is. What His eternal being represents. What He has in store for us throughout eternity.
