clapping trees

oil on canvas
60" x 48"
"You will live in joy and peace.
The mountains and hills will burst into song,
and the trees of the field will clap their hands!"
Isaiah 55:12

I should name this painting "clapping trees transformed" because it looked like this a few months ago until it begged to be changed. But the painting did not posses the power to transform itself. The artist was the only one who could do the changing. I knew it could be more than it was so I recreated it into a new and better image. I tell you this story to illustrate a point about my faith. It is wrong thinking to believe we have to change in order to be a Christian. It is actually just the opposite. Christ, the creator God, is the one who transforms us.....until we look so much like Him that there is an unmistakable family likeness.
"Do not fear change, for I am making you a new creation,
with old things passing away and new things continually on the horizon."
2 Corinthians 5:17

What started as a skill building exercise, inspired by
Karin Jurick's Bust-Ed series, has turned into this 64 piece collection of 4" x 4" paintings. I learned so much....like painting an evil guy in pink makes him look less evil. Some of these guys look eerily familiar. Below are close ups of a few of my favorites:

"So it's paramount that you keep the commandments of God, your God, walk down the roads he shows you and reverently respect him. God is about to bring you into a good land, a land with brooks and rivers, springs and lakes, streams out of the hills and through the valleys. It's a land of wheat and barley, of vines and figs and pomegranates, of olives, oil, and honey. It's land where you'll never go hungry—always food on the table and a roof over your head. It's a land where you'll get iron out of rocks and mine copper from the hills."
