I began by painting the entire 1m square canvas in a darkness shade. Then I started to pull out these “shimmering threads” – light out of darkness – while listening to classical/worship music, which helps me stay in the right mood.
I want to get across the “flowing” feeling of a wind blowing through a field, or a fish swimming through deep water. The power of a storm and the relaxing peace of a wave. Something uncontrollable and uncontainable, yet part of ourselves.
Just as music can give us audible signs of a huge creative force, so I wanted this painting to capture visible signs of that same huge creative force.
The Spirit searches all things,
even the deep things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:10
This painting requires a big wall and a large room or hall to enjoy the tiny details and its full impact.
Like most of my big nebula/abstract cloudy space scenes, this painting has now been sold.
How long does it take to create a painting like this?
This depends on the number of other creative projects I have on or planned, but they normally take several weeks of seclusion so that the delicate ethereal and powerful balance can be achieved, on a practical as well as mental level.
How much do your large nebula/space scenes/abstract prophetic oil paintings cost?
In the region of £1000. Please check back in the Galleries section for future works or get in touch with me here.
