INTRODUCTION:

THE REVELATION PAINTING

La Pittura di Rivelazione

 

The Revelation Painting was inspired from so many sources throughout my lifetime including the “Old Masters” and their impeccable styles.  The most prominent inspiration beyond a doubt was my mother, Mary Ann.  She was also a very talented artist who put her painting on the back burner in a sacrifice to be a wife and for motherhood and for that I am grateful.  Within her motherly love, she instilled within me a powerful imagination giving me the ability of vision and creation.  My mother ignited the passion of The Revelation Painting mainly through something that happened to her when she was twelve years old; an event that changed not only her life but also mine as her daughter.  Sometimes we receive more than genetics from our parents; we receive the seeds of dreams and through those seeds, gemstone foundations become a magnificent and massive painting!

 I cannot say that I am religious, but I am learning to find my own answers.  The Revelation Painting and 12 years of its creation have offered insight beyond what I could have expected to receive from even formal study.  There was one white bible in our home and it was my mothers.  Although I had spent countless hours trying to read it from the beginning, I returned to the Book of Revelation.  Visual imagery of creatures with six wings covered with eyes, locust with men’s faces, woman’s hair, golden crowns and tails like scorpions overwhelmed my imagination.  Although I found my heart, pounding often times, it was not in fear of what I was reading, it was the image I conjured up through imagination and its glorious power often times carrying me to sleep on the back of a horse with a head like a lion!  My love for the visuals was very inspiring.

Becoming an adult, I began to realize the natural resources of the world and their unsurpassed beauty, which cannot be mimicked even through  science, such as a true rainbow during a soft rain, the blue to violet hues within a red ruby, and the sparkle of a human eye filled with innocence, fear or sorrow.  I began to develop a sense of humbleness while searching for the gemstones that play such a critical role in the New City of this painting.  I saw humanity crushed by diamond thieves, the life, spirit and passion carved from people’s hearts, and in countries where the citizens should be living like kings of the earth due to the natural resources they sleep upon, children are starving to death!   The Revelation Painting developed into a global endeavor through the stones of the New City and the new world it represents.

In creating a global endeavor, I felt it appropriate to utilize as many languages as possible in subtitles of the painting as well creating a sense of unity.  The effort was to pull as many cultures, races, ethnicities as possible into the painting even offering messages in forward, backward and hidden formats within the painting.  People across the globe were and continue to be offered opportunities never seen before to become a part of the painting, of history in the making.  Never before has an artist offered humanity to become intertwined within his/her art as it is being created.  It is an exciting endeavor!
