In the Beginning

The Bible says, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Genisis 1:1)

I have been listening to the Lord, God, and He instructed me to depict His creations, which I have done.

It wasn't an easy task. Quite frankly, I wasn't there. So, I had to depend upon the visions God gave me and allow Him to guide my mind and my hand as I created the digital painting you see here.

God created this earth for the people He put on it, beginning with Adam and Eve. He gave it to us to care for, not to destroy, which is what we are doing. We are the caretakers of this place in the heavens that we call home, and we all need to be aware that God knows (and has known for millennia) what we are doing to it. We all need to take care of that which God has given us.

God told me to call this painting "The Firmament." It was begun in early December 2008 and completed February 5, 2009.
