"The New Wine"
Acrylic on Canvas
At present I am working on a series of paintings that will be exhibited next November. I have an expectant hope for what the coming year will bring. There have been a flood of paintings coming in over this last week and with this one I was given the title "The New Wine" before I even started painting. I'm sensing this painting is to be shown at this time.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart
Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man.
My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion;
They will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck.
The frame representing being "framed by the word of God"
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible
The word "framed" in this scripture means set in order, make fully ready. God framed the world with His word. He inscribed His word on the tablet of our heart.
Song of Songs 1:3
Because the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore the virgins love you.
Christ is like a never fading rose, His beauty remains and His fragrance is eternal.
"And no one pours new wine into old wine skins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wine skins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wine skins".
Blessings and love

The Golden Eagle
After I had laid a background in this painting I could see three birds, but the one that I was led to highlight was the one in the foreground, the Golden Eagle basking in the bright golden light surrounded by the rainbow of God, His everlasting covenant. The following words describe the attributes of the eagle:
Endurance Powerful Swift Insightful Precise Protecting Courageous
These are also some of the attributes of God that He desires for us to exhibit. Through this painting I am reminded of the flying eagle of the four living creatures mentioned in the books of Ezekiel and Revelation. The golden yellow is symbolic of God’s glory.
Swiftly soar on the wind of the spirit, reach heights, and seek things above where Christ is.
Blessings and love
