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!

 MY CUSTOM STONE CRUSHER

 

 

 

 

 

MY TOOL

 

 

For over nine years I tried to crush gemstones by various methods.  I lost many, got hit in the face many times, essentially I would consider it a very dangerous job!  Round stones become projectiles…believe me!

So I see a man on Ebay who sells gold mining tools and think:  “Wow, he might be able to design me a tool.”  The tools he was selling were far too big to crush a carat stone.  I wrote him, told him what I needed, the specifics and he made the tool by welding it, and shipped it while the metal was still hot!  He was truly what you call a “God-send”.

The tool was designed to fit flush internally with the inner base in order not to get small pieces of stones trapped in any fissure lines.  He dropped hot metal (steel) into the barrel and quickly brushed it with a steel brush to make it shiny, smooth inside.

This device is heavy, I thought it might break my scanner glass so I placed it in two scans below.  The plunger (I call it) is solid steel with a welded pipe vertically and a hollow handle welded horizontally.  It is a very powerful tool!  I destroyed some quartz (as practice pieces) in the beginning until I got the exact range to smash the stones.

The main thing I learned about using this tool is that although you are smashing very valuable stones and breaking them into shards, you still need to be gentle and respectful or when you lift the plunger, you may be left with colorless white powder!  It is also great for anger management issues~!

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).
