On the fourth day, God created the sun, the moon and the stars.
This painting had not been shared yet as it was very personal and from a deep study and reflection prompted by my son, Kenny. He asked me to do paintings of all the 7 days of creation and God's rest.
I have read the passages detailing the creation so many times, taught it in children's and teens classes and have always been in awe. It wasn't until I studied it from an artist's perspective that I totally grasped the magnificent awe of God. I ended up doing sketches in black and white and writing the verses. I saw each day in a whole new way, almost more that I could fathom. I did a painting in oils representing Day 4. It in no way is it a true or perfect likeness but a picture I could see in my head. I am grateful for all of creation, all I can see, hear and experience and I only know a small part. I enjoy and cherish it everyday.
I gave the painting and the notes and sketches to my son in 2023 and I'm glad he reads, studies and appreciates God's word and his world.
You might enjoy you doing this. It doesn't really matter what art you come up with, it matters that you learn and grow closer to God.
Have a happy day!
