This is the sixth, and final, painting in a series called “Circles”. This last one, I didn’t see until very recently. Just as I got the idea for “Dominion”, and told my wife about it, she brought up something that had not occurred to me before. See, I had figured out, after the 4th one, that I was seeing painting backgrounds that were sticking to a color wheel of primary (red, yellow, and blue) and secondary colors (purple, green, and orange). So, the final one would be orange. I hadn’t seen the background yet, but I knew it would be orange.
My wife reminded me of the brilliant colors of the tabernacle back in the stories of Moses. We did some reading in the Bible, then determined that it would be best to look up what the Biblical meanings of these colors were, and compare that to what the verses were about and what they were meaning. That is the part that left me in wonder. We strongly feel that God has shown me these paintings, in vivid colors, to speak to me about the blessings we’ve been praying about and for. It was right about then that I saw the orange background, but the verse didn’t come until a bit later. What I saw was like a drop into orange water – the rippling of the surface. The verse is 2 Corinthians 9:10:
“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.” (NIV translation)
I call this one “Harvest”. Once I get a better photo, I’ll update this post. But, for now, enjoy the mediocrity of my cell phone.
And the final picture:
