Genesis 1 Painting Series

Standard

Genesis 1

I finished my depiction of Genesis Day 1 based on the scripture from the Bible; 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

1:2 And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.

This painting is a 48″ X 60″ Oil on canvas done in the traditional renaissance style of the old masters using layered glazing techniques.

This first painting of the series was commissioned by one of my collectors Greg Dillion and I thank him for the inspiration to do all 7 days of creation. Although God rested on the 7th day he created animals on the 6th and at the end of the 6th day he created Man and Woman so I will do a painting of the animals for the 6th and the Man and Woman creation for the 7th painting.

I am currently taking orders for the the other days. I have taken an order for  Day 2. This will be an Epic collection in my career so if you are interested please let me know asap as I have many collectors expressing interest;  RietveldR@aol.com
