Throne Room

"Throne Room"
Acrylic on Canvas

Weebly is driving me nuts!  Email me for purchase info.

     This is a piece that I started during worship this morning.   I'm so totally always amazed at how the Lord always comes through.  I was struggling with this piece.  I had a little bit of an image in my head:  of the colors that I see when I worship, and the veil, and just dancing before my Father.  I could not seem to get that going.  Granted, I only have 2-3  songs to work it out during church worship.  Sometimes, I long for the worshipful painting time during communion to continue to paint.  But sometimes the very best worship is in my own studio in my quiet time...loving my Lord; worshiping my Lord, interceding for others, and petting my beloved little doggie, J.W.  This painting just transformed.  I suddenly realized that I had painted a trumpet and didn't even realize it!  I was just praising, praying, and asking the Lord...what?  I began....I realized there was something to this.  He brought to memory...something about the throne room. I quickly google what I was thinking.  Come to find out, I had put in the 24 elders!  At that point, I knew I was on to something, so I continued with the 4 creatures and the 7 spirits.  If you read the verses, you will see that I was on the right track.  I love to be on the right track.

Revelation 4

New International Version (NIV)

The Throne in Heaven

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasperand ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits[a] of God. Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:
“‘Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,’[b]
who was, and is, and is to come.”
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
