THE REVELATION PAINTING

Inspired from a childhood experience, The Revelation Painting has been an 15 year endeavor to not only create a magnificent and historical work of fine art, but to use worldwide effort through the use of natural resources in creating the painting-the first of its kind. Precious and semi precious gemstones were gathered and crushed into shards for Scene VII of the painting. In collecting the stones from all over the world, their beauty shed an illuminating light on the people and cultures who build their homes and lives upon such beauty. In admiring the stones one begins to admire the people and their culture striving for an exposure unlike any other creating a kind of visual and artistic peace around the world!

The Revelation Painting is a massive work of art measuring 12 feet by 40 feet with seven magnificent scenes. Thirty canvases 48″ X 48″ are required for the creation of the painting. The canvases are gallery wrapped cloth and custom-made wooden canvases required to carry the weight and storage of the elements of the painting. This painting will travel the world in exhibition and is history in the making!

The Revelation Painting has been in the works for 15 years and is scheduled for release in December 2012. The artist has expressed that in this world of turmoil and unsettling conflict, that something very beautiful can be created through resources not commonly used to create unity and world peace. Fifteen years were dedicated to exposing the beauty of the world and its resources, its people, spirit, culture and soul. The artist states: “It is a “presence” of beauty for the world, visual peace in times of turmoil.”

The painting incorporates fiber optics, 3D “flip” graphic resources, and OVER $140,000.00 of gemstones from around the world, among other things commonly not seen in fine arts. Each gemstone holds a sacred place in the painting which is identified in one of seven journals being created simultaneously titled: The Stones. The journal includes information about the stones and it’s origin related to the painting. One of the mysteries of Revelation have been uncovered in this section of the painting!

The other six journals are:
The Journal of Dreams
The Journal of Visions (which includes the last year of the making of the painting as in a diary format)
The Journal of Measures
The Journal of Sketches
Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs!
Journal of Acknowledgement, the most important journal in the series acknowledges the participation no matter how great or small toward completion of this masterpiece. It discloses not only personal contributions but information provided by the contributor and advertising if desired of their businesses, personal information, a message to the world, dreams and aspirations. Essentially whatever the contributor wants to say to the world!

Scene II GOD measures 14 feet by 9 feet and is alive with color and energy, moving on the canvas and illuminated. As the audience becomes hypnotized by the sparkle and light, the painting begins to bleed before their very eyes: Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs! A hidden mystery is disclosed, then the painting returns to the beauty of brilliant, white light and energy!

Over $2500.00 of high quality acrylic paints were used to create the Devil due to his remarkable, highly textured reptilian skin. Real gold was used in various areas of the painting! Human hair on some characters for realism embedded and combed into the heavy lacquer becoming a part of the painting forever. A mystery of religion and humanity is revealed within the Four Horsemen which will be disclosed later in the blogs to follow!

Please subscribe to the blog for regular updates. The painting will be shown via live webcam in mid (est., June) 2012 with the artist working on it…THE FINALE. There will be scans of the work and updates of all aspects of the wonderful creation starting in January 2012. You will view the last year of the making of this historical painting. It is a painting to the people for the people. You and the world are a part of it!

Please note that all aspects about the painting will be blogged including but not limited to: Letters written soliciting sponsorship and/or investors, auctions, advertising of the painting, in addition to specific blogs related to the making of the painting. You will not be solicited but will have access to where the areas of participation are offered such as having your name embedded in the painting as a crusader of good in the visible but invisible battle of good and evil which is occurring right before your eyes!
It is exciting, original and Revelation is Rising!

EMERALD-The Fourth Stone

 

Red Emerald-Bixbite

 

Beryl has been considered a valuable gemstone since prehistoric times. There are many colors of beryl known under many names. Green beryl is called emerald. In the 1800s green beryl was removed from the beryl family and called emerald. Blue beryl is aquamarine, colorless is goshenite, pink is morganite and yellow is heliodor ranging from a bright yellow to a honey-golden yellow.

Red beryl is extremely rare and mimics shades of red from bubble gum to to scarlet, or the color of blood. Mainly found within the Wah Wah Mountains of Utah, only an estimated 60 pounds were ever mined in the history of the world! Some smaller amounts have been found in other countries recently. Oddly enough it seems people are drawn to this stone yet do not understand why. The reason will be revealed later via an exerpt from The Stones Journal.

Blood?

 

The most common thread between this stone, its rarity, and the similar color of blood is in fact that the bible pounds a message to its readers that we should never forget that Jesus shed his blood for our sins. What better way to elevate the significance of that sacrifice than to mark it with the rarest gemstone in the world? These facts seem confusing but within The Revelation Painting there is a mystery of Revelation which has been overlooked since the bible was written and it will be revealed in The Stones Journal. Once revealed, the mystery is easily seen in the painting. The price for red beryl or Bixbite is astronomical! For one faceted carat, you can expect to pay $20,000.00 or more. Although I have obtained 6 carats of rough stone and the collection required for this section of the painting (an estimated 272 carats) will obviously have to be forfieted in lieu of a replacement stone of similar color or some other meaningful way to express the significance of this most important section.

I once spoke to a man who had worked in the mines in Utah and asked for the owner’s contact information. He was very put off when he found that I needed to crush it for the painting. He went on to say that the stone was highly coveted and that the owner would never sacrifice it for the painting. I will never know if I do not ask, so time will tell if the mine owner will sacrifice a handful of the stone.

When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Revelation 6:7-8 NIV

Revelation 6:8 Aramaic NT: Peshitta
ܘܚܙܝܬ ܤܘܤܝܐ ܝܘܪܩܐ ܘܫܡܗ ܕܗܘ ܕܝܬܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܘܬܐ ܘܫܝܘܠ ܢܩܝܦܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܥܠ ܪܘܒܥܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܕܢܩܛܠ ܒܚܪܒܐ ܘܒܟܦܢܐ ܘܒܡܘܬܐ ܘܒܚܝܘܬܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܀

I have to admit that I was petrified these days regarding my discovery of the skulls and the races in my previous blog regarding the Four Horsemen.  I was sure I was wrong about the Pale horse.  In the Aramaic Bible (first translations), it states that the Pale Horse is the Green Horse.  It was shocking to me, a massive mistake in my understanding of what I read…see, this is why I have all kinds of bibles now!
And behold a green horse, and his name that sat on him was death, and hell followed after him, and power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth
Odor, color changes, and bloating of the body during decomposition are the results of putrefaction. The lower part of the abdomen turns green due to bacteria activity in the cecum. Bacteria break down hemoglobin into sulfhemoglobin which causes the green color change. A formation of gases enters the abdomen which forces liquids and feces out of the body. The gases also enter the neck and face, causing swelling of the mouth, lips, and tongue. Due to this swelling and misconfiguration of the face, identification of the body can be difficult. Bacteria also enter the venous system causing blood to hemolyze. This leads to the formation of red streaks along the veins. This color soon changes to green, through a process known as marbelization. It can be seen on the shoulders, chest and shoulder area, and thighs. The skin can develop blisters containing serous fluid. The skin also becomes fragile, leading to skin slippage, making it difficult to move a body. Body hair comes off easily. The color change of the discoloration from green to brown marks the transition of the early stage of putrefaction to the advanced decompositional stages.
See the cited article here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decomposition

Also from Wikipedia:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Horsemen_of_the_Apocalypse

The fourth and final horseman is named Death. Of all the riders, he is the only one to whom the text itself gives a name. Unlike the other three, he carries no weapon or other object (but some versions say that Death carries the scythe, symbolizing that he is the Grim Reaper); instead he is followed by Hades.
The color of Death’s horse is written as khlômos (χλωμóς) in the original Koine Greek, which is often translated as “pale”, though “ashen”, “pale green”, and “yellowish green” are other possible interpretations. The color suggests the sickly pallor of a corpse. The natural colors of horse coats that could be indicated include dun, palomino, buckskin, or one of several color variants with dilution genes.
How absolutely appropriate!  The riders’ name is Death and he is in stages of decomposition with his green horse.  Now I have to look at decomposition bodies, I have to study them and see the true colors of early decomposition.  It is amazing, the work required to create this painting.  There is obviously never a dull moment!

So the error remains close to the surface of my brain, haunting and taunting me.  I thought:  Why in the world would the Pale Horse actually be green, such an unnatural color?  Then last night I was watching Dr. G.- Medical Examiner.  She was talking about a young man who died and was decomposing earlier than normally expected.  She said:  “Decomposition turns the skin a blue-green color.”  I found myself sitting upright and at attention!  Wikipedia talks about the decomposition process and its stages.  Here is a part of it (where the green comes from):

The Four Horsemen

My studio space only allows four canvases to be placed together at a time.  This is where the Journal of Measures (an Numbers) comes in handy.  I can look at the general layout and know how much space I have to work on a piece of the painting.  Last night I placed four canvases together and drew out the sketch from The Journal of Sketches.  As I mentioned before, horses are my weakest area.  After countless attempts, I feel satisfied with The Black Horses head, yet it still requires a lot of detail.  The body though, currently has eight different legs!  I will have to decide on the legs I want a little later.  The Pale Horse is around 2 feet tall and The Black Horse around 7 feet tall!  The horses are marching forward, that is why the same leg (right front) is lifted in both horses as they march in a uniform manner.  I may lighten The Black Horses eye a little later.  The decision to make the horse standing toward the viewer seemed the best direction.
GENERAL SKETCH (Still creating this scene):

The Black Horse’s chest is centered between four canvases.  There is a reason for that, it is the center of attention in the group of four.  The Pale Horse is the next, The Red Horse (not pictured yet), then The White Horse in the distance (not pictured yet).
