New Abstract

Untitled Abstract, 22 x 15" Acrylic on paper
©2011, Helen Read 

This one has taken a long while to finish.  It is composed of many small circles and dots, shifting colors and nuances of colors very subtly.  

The idea behind it is the scripture that states "In the beginning the Word already existed.  He was with God and he was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  He created everything there is.  Nothing exists that he didn't make.  Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone." (John 1:1-4) and "...through the Son he made the universe and everything in it.  The Son reflects God's own glory, and everything about him represents God exactly.  He sustains the universe by the mighty power of his command."  (Hebrews 1:2-3) 

I really like the idea that by his power he holds everything together and sustains all of the systems and processes of our universe.

So beautiful, Helen.

I would love to see it transferred into fabric maybe using batiks ;)

With your permission I might want to try it someday.
