Glory Cloud
Acrylic on Canvas
When Jesus was transfigured before His disciples, the cloud of glory overshadowed them
Mark 9:7
And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud saying, “This is my beloved Son, Hear Him! 
Revelation 1:7
Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him.  And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.  Even so, Amen.
Ezekiel falls on His face when he sees the glory of the Lord
Ezekiel 44:4
Also He brought me by the way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord; and I fell on my face.
This painting features marbling.  Marbling is a method where oil paint is dripped into water and the colours float upon the surface of the water and form patterns.  Paper is placed on the surface of the water and a print of these special and unique patterns is made.  Each piece is uniquely patterned and many times these special and unique designs remind me of the patterns inside of a rock. 
We are patterned on the rock Christ Jesus.  He is the perfect pattern we have to follow.  Our heart reveals the intricate and beautiful pattern of Christ in us.  He is changing us from the inside out, purifying our hearts.   The cloud of His glory will rest, magnifying and intensifying His presence, bringing heaven to earth, revealing His majesty and power.    Jesus’ love from heaven.  The brightness of His manifest presence, radiating and illuminating His people. 
A prayer
Lord, as your glory falls upon me, let it transform me.  Overshadow me with your manifest presence, make me whole.  Show me your glory, lead me to your glory all the days of my life,  in Jesus name.   Amen.
Blessings and love
