The Waters

Acrylic on canvas 40×40 inches

The Book of Genesis says that the Spirit of God was hovering over the Waters in creation.  This is a beautiful and mysterious word picture.  Apparently all was darkness in this primal phase of creation. No light had yet been spoken into existence.  The waters are described as “deep.” I painted this big 40 x 40 inch canvas recently.  It was done in acrylics.  I wanted to show the two-fold qualities of depth and movement.

“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
Genesis chapter one, verse two.  New International Version of the Bible.
