Is, Was, Is to Come

"Is, Was, Is to Come"____12 x 12 oil on gallery wrap canvas___Alpha and Omega Opening, March 27, Austin
Every few month there is an opening and show of new works presented in a SUPERIOR art space at Hill Country Bible Church in Austin, TX. These shows are professionally presented and exhibit an amazing variety of works by over 30 artists working in ALL media: 2-D and 3-D alike. I joined this group a few months ago and feel very small among the talent and interpretations of themes represented. This season's theme is "Alpha and Omega", and the works will have interpretations on this theme....I have two works inthe show...here is one, with its interpretation...
· Title of piece: Is, Was, Is to Come
· Medium used : OIL
Creation itself is a “tri-unity” of matter, space and time. It serves as an ever-present reminder of Him who made it. Jesus is the ETERNAL Lord, the Alpha and Omega. Time, unlike eternity, has a measurement: a start, a finish, a “now”. …This painting depicts a reminder of one experience in time: is it the “Start or the End of a Day” ? or is it “The Start or the End of the Night? Our observation and study of created nature will answer this question!

ohh! I really love this one, Mrs. Vaughan! I especially love the crazy brush strokes in the sky, in particular the yellow one in the upper center. Beautiful!

Hi V - how can someone with your talent feel small amongst other artists??? You are too good for that as this magnificent painting shows. The colours are absolutely incredible!
