THE REVELATION PAINTING-A MYSTERY REVEALED
This is a true revelation about The Revelation Painting. Throughout history it has been missed and will change religion, as well as history as we know it to be regarding Revelation in the bible. After working on this painting for the past 13 years I realize exactly how something of this magnitude was missed. Upon crushing stones for the painting I began to see how the colors created something very familiar although it was not fully apparent at first. Initially I saw the stones of the twelve foundations just as anyone else but then started to see a pattern. Intermittently within the pattern some stones seemed out of place. I began to research the origins of the stones, ancient known colors, their original names, ancient descriptions and then I realized what the stones meant. A story unfolded before my eyes!
The first stone of the twelve foundations is Jasper (please see the blog on Jasper and subsequent stones). I imagined a “New City” in the sky; the heavens and thought the correct stone was Ocean Jasper; a blue stone. I began requesting Ocean Jasper from all over the world. It was through a dream that I realized my mistake only 10 years later. A dream lead to the discovery and it was as though a tape recorder played the sentence: “His face shone like the sun, as a precious gemstone as clear as crystal; a Jasper stone.” Day and night the words taunted me. I researched Jasper; a quartz and realized that it was the clear, brilliance of quartz crystal which reflects small rainbows within it similar to a diamond effect! What better a stone to signify the pure cleanliness, shine and glory of God himself? A city which “shines like the sun”.
Sapphire followed but the common blue sapphire was not correct either. Upon researching the colors of Sapphire, I was in awe to realize that red Sapphire is a Ruby! I placed a Ruby for the second stone of the foundations and threw caution to the wind. It was a very expense risk and the first time I smashed a ruby into shards I thought I would pass out but interestingly enough, it was comfortable and extremely natural. Mingling ruby with the quartz began to create a fading effect, like dry pigments; the richer the mixing the darker the color, so a small amount caused a pink effect fading to a rich, translucent red-the hallmark of the brilliance only Ruby has. Little did I realize at that time the translucency also played a significant role in the meaning of the New City and the twelve foundation stones.
The third stone, Chalcedony was also known for its sky blue, heavenly color. Now, against the red and clear it was obvious that the blue was incorrect. According to the pattern of color I was trying to discover, it was apparent the Chalcedony was minimally red-orange, if not solidly red. I researched Chalcedony and once again was surprised to find that red is a rare color of the stone. The red of Chalcedony is more opaque that the Ruby. When I looked at the red color it reminded me of blood; the red-orange color of blood and it was like the brilliance of God was bleeding, fading like a slow bleed. It was only destiny that the next stone-Emerald was red. I battled over my theory and knew that at one time Emerald had to have been a red stone. I started from the beginning.
Emerald is a Beryl. Beryl’s come in all colors, including red. After intermittently learning about stones, it was when the economic crisis in the United States prompted me to start collecting a “nest egg”, something that would always have value throughout time like gold, platinum, precious gemstones… I looked for the rarest gemstone in the world and found beyond my wildest imagination red Beryl, a red “Emerald” or Bixbite! I still faced the dilemma of why the only Emerald I had ever known was green. I found that in the 1800s green Beryl was separated from the family and man called it Emerald! I had found the discrepancy amongst the stones and within the fade from translucency to opaque, the deepest red of Bixbite is the color of blood! My New City was bleeding!
What is the most powerful sacrifice made for humanity in the bible? Jesus shed his blood and died for our sins so that we will have everlasting life. Everlasting life in God’s New City! How appropriate for a New City-God’s New City, a new and pure beginning to shine in his image first and foremost. Secondly, to never let us forget the sacrifice which was made-Jesus’ blood and ultimately his life? The first six foundations show glory, a slow bleed, a vanishing bleed through Sardonyx and Sardius (Carnelian) turning red-orange to orange, and the seventh stone (a division stone from one message to another yet overlapping to connect the meanings of a promise), is Chrysolite-gold, like the streets of the New City shiny like glass.
The following colors after Chrysolite are the seven colors of the rainbow in their correct order. A rainbow signifies a “promise” as noted in the story of Noah’s Arch. Personally I would imagine that within the New City there would include a promise of purity, overall good and God’s plan. As I have stated before: I am not religious but I am learning to make my own decisions. If I were God I suppose I would have hidden astounding clues within my work which is what prompted the many mysteries within The Revelation Painting. It is an exciting time and Revelation is rising!

RAINBOW

Revelation is about sevens and mysteries. There are seven colors in a rainbow. The seventh stone from top to bottom in the mentioned in the foundations is Chrysolite which signifies a division line within the foundation stones between two messages.

JASPER (QUARTZ)
Rev. 21:11 …“It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like Jasper, clear as crystal.”

JASPER-QUARTZ "As clear as crystal"

SAPPHIRE (RUBY)
Every color of the stone Corundum is considered a ”Sapphire” except for red. The red Sapphire is a Ruby.
Translucent red fading from the clear…starting to bleed…

SAPPHIRE (RED) RUBY

CHALCEDONY
More opaque, a richer red-a rare color…heavier bleeding…

CHALCEDONY (RED-OPAQUE)

EMERALD
A Beryl. In the 1800’s, man removed the green Beryl from the Beryl group and called it an Emerald. Is this the Emerald mentioned in the foundations of the New City? It fits perfectly into the scheme of color and meaning.
RED Beryl-Bixbite, the rarest gemstone in the world!
The feedback about this stone is amazing, many people are attracted to it compared to other stones of the painting and ask constantly what kind of stone it is. Why would that be?Why does the stone fall in this position within the foundations? Does it symbolize the rarity of Jesus’ blood? Only 60 pounds of this rare stone was ever mined!
(This gem is typically heavily included, opaque, and the faceted Gem is very expensive. You could expect to pay $20,000 to $25,000 for a one (1) carat Red Beryl; RED EMERALD!)

EMERALD (RED) BIXBITE

SARDONYX
Blood (red blood cells and yellow plasma)
The blood is now fading from red to orange.

SARDONYX (Red Orange Transition)

SARDIUS
Carnelian-pure ORANGE transitional stone into the remaining rainbow. The second color of the rainbow.

SARDIUS-CARNELIAN

The New City built by GOD will shine in the image of God’s glory (as noted above-the “shine”) as Jesus’ blood flows to let us never forget the sacrifice he made. The blood separated by the golden division line from blood to the seven (remaining five) rainbow colors in their correct order, of a promise of God’s love.

RAINBOW-A promise!

 

THE REVELATION PAINTING
Please note the most of the stones mentioned have a spectrum of colors, which exhibit fading and transitional properties from one stone to another, therefore one color of the rainbow to the next, e.g. A Ruby may be represented in pink to red in various shades and a Topaz can range in the green-blues, among other colors. Amethyst can be seen in darkest purple to violet to an almost clear (among other colors), which could be considered blending with the clear Jasper and starting the process all over again.

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!

Please forgive the poor scanned image.  The scans are from the actual Journals.  References will be acknowledged regarding the odd “things” which have happened spontaneously when working on this painting, such as the journals were purchased online and the number of blocks were not counted, the image of the journal was a closed book.  Upon receiving the journal, it was opened to reveal a perfect grid for the entire painting.  It seems like a little detail but there are more, many more which facilitate ease in the making of this painting.
THE LAYOUT
 
This is the main canvas design of the painting requires 30-48″ x 48″/4 foot x 4 foot canvases.  The canvases are numbered for ease of work processes.  As noted in the first scan, each small box represents a 6″ x 6″ square within the total 48″ x 48″ canvas.  Twenty canvases are cloth, gallery wrapped canvases 1 1/2 inches thick.  Ten canvases are custom wood which are not made yet.  The wood canvases are designed to carry weight; the weight of cables and the weight of gemstones.  The cable canvases are designed with half moon shaped doors which open vertically to house coiled cables (there will be a blog later regarding these canvases).
 It is easy to lose sections of working canvas within the painting with these small measures.  Later, each canvas will be blown up by zoom for accuracy.  The rough sketch will be placed at various levels to increase the size in steps.  Moving back and forth through the Journal of Measures and The Journal of Sketches will decrease error when the scenes are painted.  The Pale Horse was sketched onto the canvas and after working it out in The Journal of Measures, it was found that the sketch was only one third of the required size!  

This is the main layout measuring a total of 12 feet by 40 feet.  Please comment as needed to help see anything missed in any scan regarding the design process.  This painting involves input and supplies from all over the world.  You have a part in its creation no matter how small.  Please, say what is on your mind and remember:  The only “stupid” question is the one which goes unasked.”  Thank you in advance!

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!

THE BLACK HORSE
 

A nine year old practice piece
Please note that the true height of this horse and rider are over nine feet on the canvas and that this horse is in the audience’s face.
If we think about these horses as segments of time* in lieu of what they stand for, the black horse carries the balances.  For me that means equality and justice.  Throughout history if we look at time and where various equalities meant more than ever before, that is the time we currently live in.  Think about it…womens rights, smokers rights, gay rights, human rights, racial and ethnic rights, world rights, human rights,…Who was the father of equality?  Who stood up for rights of equality more than anyone in history?
Martin Luther King
and he is the rider of the Black Horse.
“…a “BLACK HORSE” appeared and went forth, whose Rider held in his hand a “pair of balances,…” 
 
I am still negotiating whether to have this horse facing forward and reared.  I think that presence would be astounding but would take the faces further away from the viewer.  Here the faces are too significant in this portion of the painting.  The rider is higher than 6 feet on the painting without the horse reared and the perspective from below looking upward may interfere with the true message in this scene.
This is still very much a working piece.
 

Behold…THE BLACK HORSE!

 

 
*Please watch for the future blog on the Four Horsemen, racial classification,  and the segments of time they represent.  Along with the racial classifications of the horses, this blog will illustrate how races and time interact from past, present and into the future.  The coming blog will also reveal suprising political figures within the painting (the second and mysterious painting hidden in plain site within The Revelation Painting who have a part in the ancient and ongoing battle of good and evil noted in the journals overview blog).

It is time to get back into gear.  I spent the last few months in useless “marketing” efforts trying to gain corporate sponsorship for this massive painting.  I have come back to my senses and realized I, and I alone are the master of this painting’s destiny.  Never do I, or have I started at the bottom and worked my way up.  I have this simple philosophy:  Start at the top! It could end up in a tragedy or success because at the top, the only place to go is down.  The key is once you get to the top, you never let go!

I am the creator of a massive work of art called THE
REVELATION PAINTING which measures an incredible 12 feet by 40 feet!  Not since DaVinci’s time has there been a religious painting of this magnitude.
This painting is history in the making!

I am writing you Sir in effort to gain your support.  I am an American born artist but the significance of this painting is paramount.  I would like to release this painting from Italy with the support of the church.  There has been nothing throughout history which can match the true magnificence this painting.

The painting is alive and moves with fire, passion, and energy!  It bleeds on the canvas and returns to its original state.  There are messages within the painting written backwards and the painting changes to other paintings in front of the audience’ eyes, true awe and spectacular!

There are mysteries of Revelation which are uncovered within the painting which will change what we previously knew about the book of Revelation.  It is well worth the churches time to look into this painting and I would be honored as the artist.

I have been working on this painting for the past 11 years, it is what I
would consider a “life’s work.”  I have received materials for this painting from around the world, making it a true global effort.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.

I have created a blog:  www.therevelationpainting.wordpress.com

  where I am creating public interest very rapidly!  This is the last year of the painting’s creation which has been kept a secret until now.  It is exciting and I would very much appreciate your attention above all which become involved.

Respectfully yours

Below, you can see a summary (Please note I am not a professional marketer, just an artist working independently on all aspects of this painting):

—ABOUT THE PAINTING—
The Revelation Painting©
“La pittura di rivelazione”

THE REVELATION PAINTING is a massive work of art measuring 12 feet by 40 feet with 7 magnificent scenes.  Thirty canvases 48″ X 48″ were required for the creation of the painting.  The canvases are of 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 indeed history in the making!  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.  Over ten years have been 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 gemstones from around the world, among other things commonly not seen in fine arts, yet the quality is comparable to the work of the “old masters” in its creation.  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 their origin related to the painting.  One of the mysteries of Revelation has been uncovered in this section of the painting!  There is an area of precious and semiprecious crushed gemstones creating the New City which spans a total of 220 inches respectively where over $40,000.00 to this date, has been
invested-Ruby, Sapphire, Chalcedony, Sardonyx, Carnelian, Beryl, Helidor, Topaz, Bixbite, Zircon, Amethyst, and Chrysoprasus…it is stunning and like nothing you have never seen!  Each 1″ section of gemstone coverage required 6 carats of crushed gemstones.  The painting also contains titles and subtitles in languages from all over the globe!
The other six journals are:
+ the artist ideas, thoughts, and feelings while creating this life’s work
(2 books Dreams, Visions)
+ Sketches of the work (1 book), Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs! (1 book)
+ Measures-with such a massive size it was imperative that the measurements be precise. (1 book)
+ Journal of Acknowledgement, the most important journal in the series acknowledges the participation no matter how great or small toward the completion of this masterpiece.  It discloses not only their personal contribution but information provided by the contributor and advertising if desired of their businesses, personal information, dreams and aspirations.
Essentially whatever the contributor wants to say to the world! (1 book)
The painting will be shown via webcam in mid 2010 with the artist working on it…THE FINALE.  There will be scans of the work and updates regarding all aspects of this wonderful creation starting in January 2010.  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!

See, he is reading my email!  Look at his face, he is astounded!  Now it’s just a waiting game…

It is unclear to me that if I had been marketing this painting for the past 11 years, if I would have been any further than I am.  It does not seem that I will gain corporate sponsorship until it is complete, then as they say:  “Everyone will be your friend”…you know.  I have been watching the U.S. economy and feel as though The Revelation Painting will not get the recognition it deserves here and have decided to release it from Italy, specifically Rome and the “grand-daddy” of religious art-The Vatican!  Regardless, tonight I did something drastic.  Tonight I wrote the Pope~!
